No in­juries re­ported in Mary­land twis­ter

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

An ap­par­ent tor­nado swept through Sal­is­bury, Md., on Mon­day af­ter­noon, flip­ping cars, tear­ing down trees and util­ity poles and dam­ag­ing build­ings.

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice of­fice in Wake­field, Va., said it re­ceived nu­mer­ous dam­age re­ports near Sal­is­bury Univer­sity.

Radar in­di­cated a ro­tat­ing thun­der­storm pass­ing over Sal­is­bury just af­ter 1:30 p.m., and a stu­dent at Sal­is­bury Univer­sity posted a video on Twit­ter show­ing an ap­par­ent tor­nado on the ground. No tor­nado warn­ing was is­sued for the storm; a se­vere thun­der­storm warn­ing was is­sued at 1:37 p.m. for the af­fected re­gion; how­ever, that is about the same time the storm dam­age was hap­pen­ing.

In the af­ter­math, pho­tos emerged on so­cial me­dia show­ing cars over­turned at a shop­ping cen­ter and dam­age to build­ings. Sal­is­bury po­lice posted to Twit­ter that so far no in­juries had been re­ported.
