The weather yesterday was crazy. Really crazy.

Hail and torrential rain pounded the Baltimore area, with tens of thousands of people across the state losing power. But while the storms in Baltimore were so strong that they caused marble to fall off city hall’s ceiling, we didn’t even get the worst of it. Around 1:30 PM yesterday, a tornado with winds up to 80 m.p.h. touched down in Howard County, the Baltimore Sun reports. So far, no injuries have been reported.


Tornadoes are exceedingly rare in this part of the country; over the past two decades, Baltimore City has seen only two. They’re slightly more common outside the city–since 2006, Baltimore County has had eleven and Howard County has had six.

For more storm coverage, WBAL has a slideshow of trees that have crashed into people’s houses, if that’s your kind of thing.
