April 27-28 tornado count up to 16; eight in Md.
Survey teams from the National Weather Service continue to inspect wind damage across the region from last week's storms. Their conclusions have boosted the tally of tornadoes in Maryland and northern Virginia to 16. With four more added this week, the total for Maryland now stands at 8.
The additions include two EF-0 twisters in Allegany County - north of Town Creek and northwest of Green Ridge. There was another EF-0 in Montgomery County north of Poolesville, and another EF-0 with a 1.8-mile track in Lusby, Calvert County. That one looks like it might have been related to the EF-1 that struck the Breton Bay area of St. Mary's County 18 minutes earlier.
All tolled (or is it "all told"?), the outbreak in the region began around 6 p.m. on Wednesday, the 27th in Stafford County, Va., continued throughout the night in both states, and wrapped up just before noon on the 28th in Lusby.
