RIVERDALE PARK, Md. (WUSA) -- As many as 800 people are currently displaced from their homes in Riverdale Park, Md. according to the town's Mayor, Vernon Archer, after roofs were blown off two large apartment buildings during Friday night's storm.
Many people are camping in cars and parking lots. Others are trickling away to find alternate places to find shelter with friends, hotels, and the Red Cross Shelter at Northwest High School on Adelphi Road.
Many vehicles in the parking lots were damaged by flying debris.
Roofers are currently on site to begin repairs, but it may take a week or more.
