On the 3300 block of Dent Place, a tree toppled on a townhouse (reportedly unoccupied), also damaging adjacent homes.

While Hurricane Irene spared the District and Georgetown from her full force, residents still felt the storm's wrath from around mid-day Saturday, Aug. 27, to the early Sunday morning of Aug. 28, when they started cleaning up. Branches and debris were strewn around homes and yards. A few had to deal with downed trees or tree branches on fences and cars. Otherwise, by lunchtime, Sunday was bright and sunny with people out on the streets, visiting friends and going to restaurants.
