    The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Ocean City earlier this week and caused structural damage to several businesses in the area. 

    The agency confirmed Tuesday that the tornado came during a severe thunderstorm Monday afternoon. It was rated an EF-0 tornado with peak winds estimated to be at 80 mph and a path 50 yards wide. 

    Officials say the tornado started as a waterspout in the Assawoman Bay, came ashore at 4:40 p.m. and lasted until 4:45 p.m.

    The tornado overturned a large supply container caused it to be moved to the next beach over. No injuries were reported.
