Tornado talk

Weather or Not

Meteorologists Derek Bowen and Scott Sumner talk tornadoes, recalling past storm events that left damage in our area.

One tornado that comes to mind in recent memory is the EF-1 tornado that hit the Town of Mount Airy, Maryland, on Friday, November 2, 2018.

Another twister in Ijamsville, Maryland that impacted neighborhoods back on Thursday, May 30, 2019. It was rated an EF-0.

While the question remains if tornadic storms are more numerous now than in past days, our awareness of these events is now at an all-time high. While one must not panic when storms strike, one must be prepared, take precautions, and plan before weather strikes.
