Snow Hill Resident "Saw Dust Across Field" From Possible Tornado

Posted: Updated:

SNOW HILL, Md. - The National Weather Service is investigating whether or not Thursday night's storm produced a tornado in Snow Hill.

"This storm was clocked by the weather Service moving at about 60 mph," said Worcester Co. emergency services assistant director Fred Webster. "That's a pretty fast moving storm."

According Webster, the reported tornado hit just before 5 PM near the 6100 block of Whiton Road. WMDT spoke with the home owner who witnessed the storm come through knocking down a tree, several ears of corn, a power line and ripping off patio screens.  

"We stood at the doors and watched it come and we saw the dust coming across the field," said George Clayville. "It was one spot and we don't know if it was a funnel or not, but it was rotating."

Clayville tells us thankfully no one was hurt and the dust he saw disappeared in a matter of six seconds. Worcester County EMS sent pictures over to the national weather service in Virginia and are waiting to hear if in fact a tornado touched down in Snow Hill.
