Wednesday September 1 2021
The remains of former Hurricane Ida packed a strong punch in central Maryland. Numerous warnings for flooding and tornados were issued throughout the afternoon, and there is a lot to sort through.
Right now the destruction was focused on South River HS and many homes in Edgewater to businesses in Annapolis, Maryland.
This post has a collection of videos, photos, and radar images between Edgewater and Annapolis.
Video of this image is among the collection below.
West Street Annapolis
You may have seem this already as it is so compelling. This photo captures the power of the tornado, but doesn’t tell the entire story.

Doppler Radar Snapshot
The most robust storm cell appears to have hit Edgewater and Annapolis in Anne Arundel County between 2:15 PM and 2:30 PM.
Here was the Doppler Radar data I shared at 2:20 PM. Here we see a hook echo on the reflectivity and velocity scans.
2 PM to 4:15 PM
It was hard to keep up with the multiple storm cells over many hours. There will be more damage reports, but this is a focus on the central Anne Arundel County cell, that did try to produce more funnels up north near coastal Baltimore and Harford County.

Footage of the Annapolis MD tornado is nuts. You don’t see tornadoes this destructive on the east coast all that often.

Lee Airport, Edgewater (near Annapolis).
Most vivid display along with flooding and damage to South River HS and on West Street.
All during Tornado Warning as part of remains of Ida.

South River High School
I received so many photos from many sources. These came from my friend Russ Dlin who lives across the street from the school.

More Edgewater Destruction
From Vincenzo Assante
The National Weather Service has confirmed this was a tornado.
My guess based on video and damage looks like it might have been an EF-2, but it could go higher. That would have winds between 111 mph+. But that is purely an educated guess. More details on the intensity and path will e available when The National Weather Service conducts a complete survey.
