(WBOC)- A late Friday afternoon storm resulted in significant wind damage to parts of Dorchester County, Md. and Sussex County, Del.

High winds tore off the metal roof of Miller's Upholstery Repair on Middle Ford Road. There were no reported injuries. The business's owners said the building was not occupied at the time of the storm. Underneath the metal roof was a flat roof, which the business's owners said helped protect the rest of the building from further damage.

In parts of Dorchester County, Md., several trees and utility poles were blown down, leaving power outages in their wake. Some buildings in the Cambridge, East New Market and Hurlock areas also sustained wind damage. 

Also in Cambridge, a FedEx tractor-trailer overturned shortly after 4 p.m. on the Frederick C. Malkus Bridge that crosses the Choptank River. The accident resulted in significant traffic delays while emergency crews investigated and cleared the scene. The bridge was reopened to traffic shortly after 6 p.m. Police have not yet indicated the cause of the accident, but straight line winds are believed to have been a factor.
