CAMDEN, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A likely tornado that touched down mid-Monday afternoon in the Camden area damaged homes and left hundreds of residents without power.
According to Camden Wyoming Fire Chief Tom Rigsby, at least eight homes were damaged in the Barclay Farms neighborhood. He says most of those homes have major roof damage. Rigsby also confirmed one minor injury, from a person who stepped on a broken light bulb.
People who live in Barclay Farms say they knew it was a tornado.
"I was scared to death. I did have my windows up, earlier, and I put them down so they were just cracked when I heard that roar like a train I knew it was a tornado," said Romaine Seward.
Lee Robertson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says the storm moved through the area about 3:20 p.m. Monday. Robertson says there were also multiple reports of a funnel cloud in Kent County.
At 5 p.m., Delaware Electric Cooperative was reporting on its website that more than 1,200 customers were without power in the county. Power was restored to the majority of customers by 6 p.m.
