Severe storms including a possible tornado blew down trees and powerlines and damaged homes Wednesday evening in a night of wild summer weather that also brought torrential downpours to Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Maryland State Police in Garrett County, MD, said the storm blew the windows out of homes and caused other structural damage in the small towns of Accident and Friendsville. Funnel clouds were also reported in West Virginia.

The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh said Thursday it would survey the area to determine if a tornado or straight line winds were responsible.
