Cleanup begins after Irene’s weekend of destruction

The Washington area began to return to normal Monday after a lashing by the former hurricane Irene, but hundreds of thousands of residents remained without power, and several local school systems were closed
At least 24 deaths were reported as a result of the storm that soaked and battered the East Coast over the weekend, including a Maryland woman who was killed when a chimney toppled and a Virginia girl killed in a car crash.
