On Thursday, April 28, 2011 the strong cold front that brought severe weather to the mid and southern U.S. swept through the Mid-Atlantic. Here are two brief videos from Maryland. One from the local television station when a long line of severe storms were moving from Harrisburg, PA south to Charlottesville, VA - including the Baltimore/Washington area. This line of storms spawned two tornadoes in Maryland - one in Frederick County and one in Montgomery County (both west of Baltimore). Fortunately, we didn't get any damaging wind gusts, hail or tornadoes where we are, however, just north and south of us there were all of those severe storm ingredients.
