National Mall July 4, 2006

Fast moving storms with lightning, hail, and strong winds fell upon a hot and humid National Mall during the Fourth of July. But skies soon cleared, and the Independence day celebration continued throughout the night. The sprawling lands of the National Mall & Memorial Parks include the Mall, the public promenade extending from 3rd Street near the Capitol to 14th Street. The National Mall is the continuation of that space where congressionally authorized park icons, such as the Washington Monument, WWII and Lincoln Memorials stand.

Security was tight as usual. Problem was that during a microburst storm people had great difficulty exiting to find cover. The National Park Service should consider creating storm shelters in the future.
