Possible Tornado Shuts Down Chesapeake Bay Bridge

WASHINGTON — The Chesapeake Bay Bridge was closed for about an hour early Monday after a possible tornado touchdown near the area.

The storm system that may have brought the tornado left damage on both sides of the bay and to parts of Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties. The bridge was not damaged.

Damage from the storm included roofs torn off townhomes, downed trees and even a boat tossed into the roadway, according to photos posted on social media.

Anne Arundel First Alert reported water and gas leaks in the area after numerous reports of pipe damage in homes.

This is a developing story. WTOP has a reporter headed to the scene.
