Cushman returns to his home to inspect exterior tree damage in Silver Spring, Maryland
Ben Cushman returns to his home to inspect exterior tree damage in Silver Spring, Maryland July 4, 2012. A large tree crashed through the roof moments after Cushman and his wife got their children out of their beds just before last Friday's devastating storms that went through the Washington metro area. Clean up of limbs and branches from destroyed trees will precede electrical crews coming into neighborhoods to restore power lines. Storm ravaged states from Indiana to Virginia carried on Independence Day celebrations on Day 5 of a power outage caused by deadly winds ripping through the region. REUTERS/Gary Cameron
