CONFIRMED: Tornado with 125 mph winds touched down in Queen Anne's County

The National Weather Service confirmed that an EF-2 tornado touched down in Queen Anne's County. Maximum winds were estimated at 125 mph. The width was 150 yards.

The waterspout moved ashore at 1:29 a.m. in the Bay City area and then traveled northeast toward Stevensville, where it lifted at 1:33 a.m. after being on the ground for about 2 miles, the NWS said.

The Bay City area in Stevensville has the most significant damage, officials said during a news conference early Monday morning.

"We've had several reports of roofs off. We had one house that was blown off of its foundation. We've had one total collapse of the house," said Scott Haas, emergency director in Queen Anne's County.
