BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — The remnants of Hurricane Ida triggered multiple tornadoes in and around Annapolis on Wednesday. 

 

Several homes and businesses were damaged by the tornados, heavy downpours and severe flooding as multiple storms swept through the area. 

 

According to reports, the tornadoes were reported in Anne Arundel County and Charles County. 

 

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman said, “The fact that this deadly tornado left us without a single physical injury reported is miraculous. It’s a testament to the preparation and the common sense of our people. Thank you for sheltering and staying in place.”
