No injuries reported in Maryland twister
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.
