Nasty storms left behind widespread damage for dozens of people in the D.C. area Friday night.

The mess left behind will keep a lot of people busy all weekend.

Ben Eisler shows us the damage in the District and Richard Reeve reports from Maryland.

The District Department of Transportation says crews were working Saturday morning to remove downed trees, branches and debris. The agency says that it had already received more than 100 tree-related service requests. The agency says the worst damage is reported in Wards 4 and 5.

Pepco reports 14,450 customers are without power. No restoration time can be estimated until there is a damage assessment, a spokesperson says.

Pepco has called in additional crews will work round the clock to restore power.

Call 877-PEP-CO62 to report damage or an outage.
