WASHINGTON (WBOC/AP)- Residents of Delmarva and the surrounding mid-Atlantic region are continuing to clean up a day after powerful storms downed trees, knocked out power and caused flooding.
 
Power companies are reporting about 2,700 customers without power across Maryland midday Friday and a few hundred customers are still in the dark in northern Virginia.
 
The Maryland Emergency Management Agency says tornadoes were reported in Montgomery, Prince George's and Worcester counties. The National Weather Service says teams are visiting areas where tornado warnings were issued to determine whether tornadoes touched down.
 
The weather service says the strongest measured wind gust in Maryland on Thursday was 61 mph at St. Inigoes in St. Mary's County and the highest reported rainfall was 2.31 inches just a few miles away at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
