Violent Storm Wallops Annapolis Area

The National Weather Service began issuing warnings for strong thunderstorms at 12:45 pm and they continued throughout the afternoon until they were replaced with an emergency alert sent to cell phones advising of a tornado warning at 3:33 pm advising people to seek immediate shelter in a basement.

And then the skies opened up.  While a tornado has not yet been confirmed, the storm was dramatic and caused a good deal of damage and power outages across the region.
