Cleanup Underway After Salisbury Tornado

Posted: Updated:

 

 

SALISBURY, Md.- An EF1 tornado hit Salisbury on Monday afternoon and flipped cars over, damaged buildings, and even downed trees and power lines. 

A tree located in a median fence on South Salisbury Boulevard is now torn apart. Workers spent their early Tuesday morning hours, picking up parts from a tree that was torn a part on South Salisbury Boulevard.

Anne Heavner is the owner of "Dressing Room," a boutique located off of South Salisbury Boulevard and she witnessed the tornado. 

"We couldn't believe all of the debris from the wind, so we unlocked the door and went outside and that's when we saw the tree was sheared off," says Heavner.

Remnants from the tree, including long branches, flew everywhere. 

Mayor Jake Day says Salisbury was prepared for the tornado and has cleanup efforts underway. 

Workers have been outside working to clean up some of the tree damages since 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, and they say they've completed their work.
