    According to Storm Team 4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer, there was a report of a funnel cloud in the area of La Plata at approximately 7:30 p.m., traveling northwest toward Brandywine and Upper Marlboro.

    That storm is part of a larger system that caused significant damage further north.

    In East Windsor, Conn. an EF-1 tornado shredded the dome of a sports complex. In Yonkers, N.Y. the winds sheered off a piece of one building's roof and sent it flying, hitting other buildings before crashing to the street.
