    Tornado close call?

    Got a tornado warning on the phone and a phone call from NOAA at exactly the same time..right 1540. We're a NOAA tide reporting station here at the compound and, apparently, when they saw the tornado south of the island on their radar system, they called the closest station to that that they had on record.

    But we can't see squat toward the south..nothing but trees and swamp.

    Nobody is reporting that it made any landfalls...must have touched down on the river and left from the river.

    Looks like a tornado hit Salisbury yesterday.

    Anyone who tells you that the negative is not just as important as the positive has obviously never jump-started their car.

    Yep. That hit before the one reported here on the Potomac. In fact, we were looking at some of the initial reports from Salisbury when the warning kicked in here.
