The tornado touched down along Stagwell Road in Queenstown. Pictures and video showed a distinct but narrow path in a corn field parallel to the road which is mostly east to west. The downed corn was in a circular pattern, and aerial footage over the corn field showed some downburst signatures on the right side of the tornado path. In addition to the cornfield damage, sporadic tree damage occurred along Stagwell Road across from the corn field. The tornado looks to have lifted before it reached the Wye River as there was no additional visible damage north of this path. Radar showed defined rotation, however given the weak intensity of the tornado it appeared to have occurred on the north side of a larger rotational signature and therefore tracked more east to west. The National Weather Service extends thanks to Queen Anne’s County Emergency Management and local media for their assistance with this survey.
