Tornado Warnings in Virginia-Video of Storm Clouds
(from earlier post)
My area was under a severe weather tornado watch. While listening to CNN The Lead on XM Channel 115 I was informed that a possible tornado was on the ground in Maryland near College Park. This video was taken about 25 miles south of the tornado sighting. In the footage you can see across the water from Virginia to Maryland. We had a large system roll through the area. Many local schools canceled class anticipating the weather.
It was rush hour in our area. Millions of commuters were traveling home and this system impeded their progress. The Washington DC area generally has many power outages due to high winds.
