WASHINGTON — There are several reports of damage around the DMV after four tornadoes touched down in Maryland Virginia Friday morning. Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Warnings were issued across the DMV.
Three tornadoes hit Maryland, with two in Montgomery County and one in Frederick County, and one tornado hit Virginia, in Leesburg. Maximum wind speeds ranged from 80 to 105 MPH. With saturated grounds, the gusts were enough to cause trees and power lines to fall in some spots.
No major injuries have been reported, but some homes, apartments, and cars sustained significant damage.
Leesburg also saw some snowflakes in the evening hours, to cap off a bizarre weather day in the DMV.
Below is some of the worst damage we've seen across the DMV:
There were reports of downed wires and significant debris in the roadway on Darnestown Road in Beallsville, Md.
Downed trees and power lines were also reported in Frederick County. A power line fell on a vehicle causing a rollover crash in the area of Mt. Airy.
