STEVENSVILLE, Md. (WBOC/AP)- Officials say they've completed house-to-house searches after a tornado tore through part of Queen Anne's County and didn't find anyone trapped or in danger.

Queen Anne's County spokeswoman Elizabeth Malasky said Tuesday morning that officials did not find anyone in trouble. Only one minor injury was reported Monday as a result of the storm. 

The National Weather Service says an E2 tornado with winds that reached 125 mph (201 kph) touched down around 1:30 a.m. Monday near Stevensville. The storm downed trees, collapsed buildings and knocked out the power of about 9,000 Delmarva Power customers. Power has been restored to all but a little more than 70 customers by Tuesday morning as the cleanup effort continues. 

Based on the current damage in the area, Delmarva Power said service is expected to be restored to most customers by 11 a.m. Tuesday. Service to those customers in the harder hit areas, including Bay City, should be restored by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The county has a shelter open at Centreville Middle School and Maryland officials are also helping residents displaced because of the storm.
