A possible tornado touched down in Salisbury, Maryland Monday afternoon, tossing cars on top of other vehicles, tearing down trees, and shearing off roofs.

The City of Salisbury tweeted, “Heavy wind damage from possible tornado in Salisbury. Salisbury Police and Salisbury Fire Departments are on scene at multiple locations. Call 911 to report downed power lines, etc.”

Shortly after it happened, photos starting flying on social media, showing cars piled on top of each other at shopping centers, and other incredible scenes.

A tornado warning was never issued, but Wicomico County was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 2:30 p.m. Monday, which warned of possible 60-mile-per-hour wind gusts.

In the midst of everything else, Salisbury is also dealing with flash flooding on major roads.
