Weather service to survey Md., Del. storm damage

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The National Weather Service crews will inspect damage around Maryland and Delaware after severe storms blew through the region.

Meteorologist Brandon Peloquin says storm survey crews will visit several locations in central and southern Maryland on Tuesday to determine whether damage reported in those areas was caused by a tornado or straight line winds.

A tornado was reported near Sykesville on Monday and a Howard County fire official reported high winds destroyed a building and detached garage in Woodbine.

Emergency officials in Baltimore reported flooding on many streets and say a water spout that moved across the harbor damaged the roof of one building at the port.

In Delaware, homes in Newark and Glasgow were damaged and numerous trees were downed. A National Weather Service team may investigate as early as Tuesday whether a tornado struck in the Newark area.
