The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for southern Charles County, Maryland, Sunday afternoon, the climax of a day that saw the D.C. region soaked by a series of storms.

At 11:51 a.m., county officials confirmed a tornado six miles southeast of Swan Point, moving north at 15 miles per hour.

The tornado was forecast to affect the areas of Swan Point and Cobb Island. There have been no reports of any damage or injuries.

Throughout the day Sunday, a low-pressure system pushed a system of showers and thunderstorms across the region from southeast to northwest. A flash flood watch is currently in effect for the District of Columbia, northern Virginia, and the Piedmont of Eastern Maryland until 10:00 p.m.

According to Storm4 meteorologist Doug Kammerer, parts of Anne Arundel County had received up to 6 inches of rain by 5:00 p.m. Sunday

The photos of the waterspout below were sent to News4 by viewer Tom W. Jackson, who took them looking toward Cobb Island from Westmoreland County, Virginia.
