Just hear on CNN that the Whites Ferry cable broke and the ferry bardge is stranded with about 20 cars on board.

Hoefully they will get everyone off safly very soon before it gets too far down river towards Potomac Falls.

We used to use it all the time to get over to my sis-in-laws house over in Germantown. My kids loved riding it, I always was a bit nervous...

Anyway just sending out prayers for those aboard.

(If any locals have a link to the story or video please post it!)

Passengers evacuated...cars rescued. Cable was apparently fine, but blocked by debris. Ferry should be running again this afternoon...
