NWS Determines Wednesday’s Storm in QAC Was Not a Tornado


The National Weather Service has determined that the damage from Wednesday’s weather event in the Queenstown area was a strong downburst from a thunderstorm and not a tornado. Strong winds moved from a farm field on 4-H Park Road, along the highway and continued the other side of 301 in the Nottingham Lane neighborhood. There was no evidence of a rotation on the radar and based on the damages, the wind gusts are estimated to have been 55-65 miles per hour.


Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services and the National Weather Service extend their appreciation to all the residents who provided information and images to assist with tracking the damage.
