The storm that erupted in central Maryland on Monday night June 14 2021 put on an impressive show.  Large hail, wind damage, and a lightning display that lasted a long time.

Here is a collection of some of the most dramatic results of this storm.

My good friend Tim Shahan was positioned in a secure location at Silo Point looking towards Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and captured the event.



What if I told you we have video of that? While Tim is a talented photographer, he has a skill for storm time lapse.

Was There A Tornado?

Storm clouds were impressive, especially lit up in the night sky.  Any reports and even overheard on scanners suggesting their was a tornado.

At 8 PM, this shelf cloud does represent a rotating complex.




Sparrows Point Funnel? 

Misti Harrah captured what might be a vortex extending to the ground.  Sometimes a SCUD cloud can be misleading, but the damage nearby suggests this could be the real thing.




Storm Survey

The National Weather Service is responsible for sending a survey crew to determine if the debris represents a tornado, the plot out the track and intensity. 

I will share their findings when complete.

The damage was much more extensive that shown here. This is just a sample, and more images are on the way.

Reminder: I will post the results of the NWS Survey when it is complete and published. 


Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
