Powerful Storm Tears Through Rockville, Center Of County — Yesterday’s powerful afternoon thunderstorm largely spared Bethesda, causing the vast majority of its damage in Rockville, Olney and Aspen Hill. A tornado reportedly formed near Georgia Avenue and Route 28. The bulk of the county’s power outages and downed trees happened in Rockville and extended east toward the P.G. County line. No major injuries were reported. [Montgomery County]

Town of Chevy Chase Nixes Shuttle Plan — The Town of Chevy Chase won’t create a shuttle service for residents who want to access downtown Bethesda after a Wednesday Council meeting. Some weren’t convinced a shuttle service or a subsidized taxi program would be worth the money. [The Gazette]

Pair of Community Meetings On Monday — Bethesda will host a pair of community meetings on Monday, starting with the second meeting of the county’s new Nighttime Economy Task Force, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bethesda Library (7400 Arlington Rd.). At 7 p.m., the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board will meet to get a crime report from 2nd District Commander Capt. David Falcinelli and to discuss Bus Rapid Transit. That meeting will take place at its regular location, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane).
