After the eruption of tremendous fatal storms on Monday, today there will be extensive clean up. I posted this photo last night from Bloom Road in Finksburg Maryland. Mr. Swann, an elderly man down the road, died after trying to clear a fallen tree. He was 89 years old and was born on that road. This storm bombarded the entire neighborhood. The woman in this photo is my wife standing next to two trees with 8 foot diameter trunks that were pushed over knocking down one of her long fences.
Shannon has property there and went to survey it. The damage is extensive, with live wires still on the ground this morning. She along with the residents are simply in shock by the power of what blew through. On a side note, a tree was struck by lightning there just a few weeks ago.
This was Doppler Radar and the Velocity Scan at 3:40 PM. There was a Tornado Warning at the time. This looked like a microburst with winds over 70 mph. All of the tree damage was pushed and fallen in the same direction. The type of event can be more destructive than. twister since it covers a larger area.
Much cooler weather behind this cold front. It is slow moving and rain will be rolling along it. The heaviest rain locally today will move towards Ocean City. The strongest storms will be Virginia Beach and southward.
