The National Weather Service has confirmed that at least nine tornadoes touched down in Maryland during last week's storm.
Five tornadoes, including three in Montgomery County, one in Prince George's County and one in Carroll County were originally recorded last Friday afternoon between 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., according to weather service spokesman Ken Witt.
They were classified as EF0 — the lowest classification on the scale used to categorize tornadoes based on damage they cause — with an estimated wind speed of 65 to 85 mph. The Montgomery County tornados touched down in Damascus and Poolesville. The Prince George's County tornado formed over the Springdale area.
Meanwhile, two stronger EF1 twisters were confirmed in Harford and Howard counties with estimated wind speeds of 86 to 110 mph. That pair is thought to have caused more than $1 million in damage.
Two more unclassified tornados were confirmed in Anne Arundel and Carroll counties, and in Virginia weather service meteorologists say one confirmed twister caused nearly $4.5 million in damage.
