A tornado may have hit Ocean City Thursday afternoon, said the National Weather Service, which received reports that a funnel cloud touched down in the city and caused wind damage to buildings, cars and trees.
Rick Curry, an observation program leader for the National Weather Service in Wakefield, Va., told the Associated Press that a tornado has not been confirmed but that a storm was moving through the area at the time.
The winds caused damage to buildings and cars in the 75th Street area of the seaside city, said a fire department spokesman. No major injuries were reported.
The Post’s Capital Weather Gang reports that the funnel would be classified as a “waterspout” if it remained over the water. The CWG has additional details about the weather conditions that could have caused the funnel, complete with a radar map.
