WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- As if Metro riders haven't had enough obstacles this week, Tuesday's heavy rainfall caused more problems for commuters.

WUSA9 Christin Frenandez viewer sent in photos of water rushing down the stairs and escalators at the Cleveland Park Metro Station.

The Maryland suburbs seemed to take the worst of the wind damage, while heavy rains washed out parts of D.C., including the Cleveland Park metro station.

A severe thunderstorm warning was in effect for the Metro area until 9 p.m. Tuesday. A possible tornado touched down in Howard County, the National Weather Service tweeted.

The storm not only produced damaging winds, but large hail was also reported throughout the area.

A viewer in Damascus sent WUSA9 a photo of a three-inch long hailstone and its golf-ball sized associate.

In Howard County, high winds brought down even larger trees than that felled in Bowie, including one which appeared to slice clean through a home.
