Thomas said the damage to the home occurred at the height of Friday's storm between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Donald Alcorn said early Saturday afternoon that he was concerned one of the trees that had been damaged, but was still standing, might pose a threat to the home.

The damaged trees were at the rear of the Alcorn home, about 50 feet away in a wooded glade with a stream. Elsewhere along Cox Road, very little, if any, impact from the storm was noticeable.

Alcorn said what he assumed was a county crew came out early Saturday, around 3 a.m., to clear tree debris from the road.

NWS investigates

A tornado had not been confirmed Friday night, but the damage is in an area that was under a tornado warning at the time of the reports, said National Weather Service meteorologist Stephen Konarik in Sterling, Va.

National Weather Service officials had said earlier Friday that a tornado had been confirmed near Jarrettsville, but later revised alerts to warn of a possible tornado.

The NWS did send a team to the Jarrettsville area Saturday afternoon to evaluate if there was a tornado touchdown, the county's Thomas said. The county reported Sunday that the initial conclusion was reached that the damage was likely to have been caused by a tornado. A final determination that it was a confirmed tornado was announced Monday afternoon.

Other parts of the county experienced heavy rainfall and localized flooding Friday night, Thomas said; however, "no other serious incidents were reported."

In addition, he said, no injuries were reported to the EOC as a result of the storm.

With regard to notifications, Thomas said the Division of Emergency Operations issued a tornado warning at 6:53 p.m. Friday, followed by emergency telephone calls through a countywide alert system at 7:03 p.m. The warning remained in effect until 7:30 p.m., he said.

A tornado touched down in Fallston on the evening of June 1, damaging several commercial buildings and homes and knocking down trees and power lines in the corridor along routes 1 and 147.

Elsewhere in the Baltimore region, Friday's storm first prompted a tornado warning at about 6:30 p.m. covering Cockeysville and later Phoenix, Sparks and Monkton. Baltimore County emergency officials reported seeing a funnel cloud near Brooklandville at 6:30 p.m.

By about 10 p.m., all of the thunderstorm activity had moved east of the Chesapeake Bay, Konarik said. The Baltimore region now appears in the midst of a week-long dry stretch.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. reported at about 10:30 p.m. Friday that there were 47 power outages in Baltimore County, 200 in Harford County, 400 outages in Howard County and 234 in Baltimore City.
