Severe Weather Ravages Maryland Tornado Leaves Trail of Destruction

Maryland residents are grappling with the aftermath of a powerful tornado that tore through parts of the state on Wednesday night, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. The tornado, which touched down in Poolesville, has caused widespread power outages and extensive damage due to fallen trees and downed power lines.

FOX 5 meteorologists Mike Thomas and Caitlin Roth reported that the tornado was confirmed by spotters around 7:14 p.m. and was tracked moving eastward at a speed of 20-25 miles per hour. By 7:20 p.m., it had reached areas near Germantown, Gaithersburg, Montgomery Village, North Potomac, and Boyds, before moving through Gaithersburg shortly before 7:40 p.m.

“This rotation has been weakening and then strengthening. It’s been pulsating,” noted Mike Thomas. “Neelsville up there to the north, we want you to take shelter as well as this line continues to move eastward.”

Caitlin Roth described the storm as “the most significant” she had ever witnessed in the area, highlighting the rotation, debris being lofted into the air, and multiple power surges caused by lightning strikes. “That is the portion of the storm right here, where this tornado is not only confirmed, but confirmed to be doing some damage,” Thomas added. “That is why it’s gone ‘considerable’. That is not issued lightly. It’s one of the first I’ve seen since I’ve been in the D.C. area.”

Roth continued, “We saw it rotating, we saw it lofting debris into the air, we saw several power surges due to lighting strikes. And right now, that hook, that tornado which just crossed 270, you saw it on our skycam has now pushed off to the east, and it is right north and east of Gaithersburg. But it is a tornado on the move, and it is heading due east into more central sections of Montgomery County, in between Laytonsville and Olney. That’s where it’s going. It’s holding together. It’s got a lot of lightning with it, too.”

As the affected communities assess the damage and work to restore power, residents are urged to exercise caution and stay informed about further developments.
