    The National Weather Service has confirmed that a funnel cloud that damaged buildings and cars in Ocean City was a tornado.

    The NWS' Wakefield, Va., bureau says the tornado with an estimated wind speed of 60 mph to 70 mph began as a waterspout and continued onto land near 75th Street on Thursday afternoon. An on-site investigation on Saturday showed that the tornado, which earned the lowest ranking on the Enhanced Fujita Scale of EF0, had a half-mile path that was about 40 yards wide.

    Damage from the storm included broken windows and ripped home siding.  No injuries were reported.
