Very interesting.  It's tough to tell with the resolution, but it doesn't seem to be rotating.  As always around here, the dang trees get in the way...

Yeah, I think that's just a piece of the shelf cloud connecting down with scud, but hard to say for sure. I saw some pieces that could have been mistaken for a funnel with a poorer perspective.

Another video (probably) of the same feature:

Shot of the storm approaching here from the end of my driveway. The rush of wind was impressive on the front end, and the power went out pretty quick. Just came back on after about an hour. Lots of tree debris and branches down but no major damage. Nice storm.

round two looks like it has some potential, so i'll stay in for that.  round 1 was a bit of a bust here, but glad to see some cells pop for others.

Feels pretty tame out there, I'm not thinking we have any juice left to support a round 2 :/

See tree damage starting around 3:10

Does that look like a tornado to anyone else? Probably heard on the radio that there was a tornado warning, and then decided what he was experiencing was a tornado.

The tree damage is pretty abnormal looking. Not sure where this was taken but it's hard to conclude what was happening in front of him from this video.

It's tough to tell.  I doubt that guy knows exactly what happened because it the rain would have blocked his visibility.

All the tree damage I can see seems to be unidirectional (to the car's right), but the fairly narrow corridor of damage seems more suggestive of an embedded tornado rather than a microburst.  I'm sure NWS will send a survey team given the damage and the concurrent rotation visible on radar.

I was driving north on I-95 headed into B'more City around 4pm, just as I got on the flyover ramp to I-395 the heavens opened up with extreme violence, looked liked the video that guy shot except for, ya know, being a coupla hundred feet up in the air on the ramp with water underneath and not being able to see where the wall was while getting pushed around by the wind, def not the best place to be at that moment. Unfortunately, no video since, ya know, not trying to be a finalist for the 2019 edition of the Darwin Awards. Good times!

If it's really still on the ground, it's gotta be one of the longer track tornadoes in the Fredericksburg vicinity that I can remember. It has maintained a surprisingly consistent TVS.

I'm guessing it is... I mean it said TOG when at Massaponax in the warning a little while back at 734pm and still says TOG at Fort AP Hill in the updated warning at 754pm... so i am guessing its continuous
