Let's put things into perspective

DCist reports that the District Department of Public Works has collected over 50 tons of debris from last week's storms, with Ward 4 being the hardest-hit area of the city. To give you an idea of how much wreckage that actually is: fifty tons is about half the mass of a blue whale, and also the equivalent of twenty-six average-sized automobiles! And DPW is continuing to pick up even more debris.
