Remnants of Ida: Possible tornado damage in Anne Arundel County
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — The National Weather Service tentatively has confirmed the touchdown of a tornado in Maryland’s Anne Arundel County as the remnants of Hurricane Ida moved across the state.
Meteorologist Ray Martin said Wednesday that there have been reports of damage in the communities of Riva and Woodland Beach.
Both sit on or near the Chesapeake Bay. The county’s fire department tweeted that agencies were investigating storm damage in areas including Londontown, Mayo and Edgewater.
The fire department said that no injuries had been reported at that point. A tornado watch remained in effect for the Washington-Baltimore region for Wednesday afternoon.
Earlier in the day, heavy rains had flooded an apartment complex in Rockville and left one person dead. Another was unaccounted for.
There are reports of a possible tornado in the Annapolis/Edgewater area. Take shelter now! If you are in this area, get to an interior room on the lowest floor of your building or home and stay away from windows and doors. https://t.co/p7iz2xN5Np— Anne Arundel County Government (@AACountyGovt) September 1, 2021
