Meteorologists investigating damage in Salisbury to determine strength of likely tornado

Meteorologists investigating damage in Salisbury to determine strength of likely tornado

The damage came as severe storms passed through the area about 1:40 p.m.

In the video above, a security camera at Hopper's Tap House captures a auto cartwheeling from the parking lot into a roadway, carried by the storm's violent winds. But no major injuries or deaths were reported.

A likely tornado caused damages and flipped vehicles in Salisbury, Maryland.

Most of the damage appeared to have been to the South Salisbury University Boulevard near Salisbury University.

One piece of evidence they are looking at - surveillance video from Hopper's Tap House in Salisbury, Maryland, shows strong winds bringing down debris and flipping parked cars onto their roofs.

The winds also flipped over cars and knocked down trees and power lines.

The National Weather Service will conduct a storm survey Tuesday morning to investigate whether a tornado did touch down in the city. Tree debris also littered a street.

An apparent tornado swept through Salisbury, Md., Aug. 7.

Eyewitnesses in the area said trees were split and cars were overturned during the storm.

"By all accounts, it does look like a tornado", Mike Rusnak of the National Weather Service office in Wakefield, Va., told DelmarvaNow on Tuesday.

But, they added, their investigation is mostly focused on determining how severe the likely tornado was.
