...STORM DAMAGE IN BALTIMORE MONDAY NIGHT DUE TO NON TORNADIC 
STRAIGHT LINE WIND GUSTS FROM THUNDERSTORMS...

SUPPLIED WITH DAMAGE INFORMATION FROM BALTIMORE CITY'S OFFICE OF 
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND BALTIMORE COUNTY'S OFFICE OF HOMELAND 
SECURITY & EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, AS WELL AS LOCAL NWS SKYWARN 
SPOTTERS AND PUBLIC REPORTS, THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE (NWS) 
SURVEYED STORM DAMAGE FROM MONDAY NIGHT IN BOTH EDGEMERE, MARYLAND
IN SOUTHEAST BALTIMORE COUNTY, AND IN NORWOOD HEIGHTS, MARYLAND 
(JUST INSIDE THE CITY BORDER FROM ARBUTUS).

AROUND 9:44PM, A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM PRODUCED A WIND GUST AROUND 
70MPH IN NORWOOD HEIGHTS/YALE HEIGHTS MARYLAND IN THE SOUTHWEST 
PORTION OF BALTIMORE CITY. THE GUST UPROOTED A FEW TREES IN THE 
COMMUNITY, AND SNAPPED SEVERAL LARGE BRANCHES. ONE TREE FELL ON, 
AND CRUSHED A PARKED VEHICLE. NO STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO HOMES WAS 
NOTED BY NWS OR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT. ALONG WILKINS AVENUE, ACROSS
FROM THE CROSS STREET OF CALWELL RD, THREE LARGE TREES WERE 
UPROOTED ON THE EDGE OF LOUDON PARK CEMETERY. ALL DAMAGE WAS BLOWN
IN ONE DIRECTION FROM THE SEVERE WIND GUST, TO THE SOUTHEAST. 
PEAK WINDS WERE ESTIMATED TO HAVE BEEN 70 MPH.

A HALF HOUR LATER AROUND 10:15PM, THAT SAME SEVERE THUNDERSTORM 
PRODUCED ANOTHER, STRONGER DAMAGING WIND GUST OVER EDGEMERE, 
MARYLAND. THIS MOST SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTED THE COMMUNITY ALONG 
JONES CREEK, AND THEN TO THE SOUTHEAST ALONG NORTH POINT ROAD. THE
HARDEST HIT AREAS WERE ALONG WALDMAN, HUGHES, AND GEISE AVENUES. 
ABOUT 6-12 LARGE TREES WERE UPROOTED IN VARIOUS AREAS IN THIS 
COMMUNITY, AND SEVERAL LARGE BRANCHES WERE SNAPPED, IN ADDITION TO
NUMEROUS DOWNED SMALL BRANCHES AND LEAF DEBRIS. SOME HOMES WERE
DAMAGED BY FALLING TREES AND BRANCHES. AS THE GUST MOVED 
SOUTHEAST IT SNAPPED TWO POWER POLES ALONG NORTH POINT ROAD NEAR 
THE INTERSECTION WITH AVENUE C. HOWEVER, NO DAMAGE WAS NOTED TO 
TREES AND FARM SHEDS ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE POLES. ALL NOTED 
DAMAGE WAS DUE TO A WIND GUST BLOWING NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. PEAK
WINDS WERE ESTIMATED TO HAVE BEEN 75 MPH. ISOLATED TREE DAMAGE 
WAS ALSO NOTED TO THE NORTHWEST OF THIS AREA, IN DUNDALK. BUT THAT
DAMAGE WAS TO A LESSER DEGREE, LIKELY FROM PEAK GUSTS AROUND 60 
MPH.

NWS BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON THANKS OUR BALTIMORE CITY AND COUNTY 
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PARTNERS, OUR SKYWARN SPOTTERS, AND THE 
PUBLIC FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE IN REPORTING DAMAGE IN THE AREA.
