3 Tornadoes Reported in Central and Eastern Md.

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Maryland Emergency Management Agency is reporting only minor damage to buildings from three reported tornadoes

Spokesman Ed McDonough says there have been no reports of injuries from the storms Thursday afternoon. He says a woman was struck by lightning in Cecil County Thursday morning.

McDonough says tornadoes were reported near Olney in Montgomery County, Laurel in Prince George's County and Snow Hill in Worcester County on the Eastern Shore.

The National Weather Service says it can't confirm any tornadoes before taking a close look at the damage.

About 55,000 Maryland homes remained without power Thursday evening. They included about 27,000 in Montgomery and about 10,000 in St. Mary's County, where baseball-sized hail was reported.

Tens of thousands of homes in northern Virginia also lost power during the storms.
