Harford County: NWS suspects tornado touched down

Sunday - 10/21/2012, 11:41pm  ET

JARRETTSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Harford County officials say the National Weather Service believes a tornado is to blame for damage in Jarrettsville over the weekend.

The county says National Weather Service representatives made the assessment after a visit to the area on Saturday.

Officials say the weather service will make a formal declaration of the tornado touchdown on Monday after a review of storm data.

A home on the 2100 block of Cox Road in Jarrettsville sustained minor damage and at least two trees on the property were destroyed during a Friday night storm that brought heavy winds and rain.

The fast-moving storm along the Interstate 83 corridor prompted a tornado warning.

No serious injuries were reported.
