CROWNSVILLE, Md. (AP) - The National Weather Service is investigating whether a tornado may have touched down in Anne Arundel County during Tuesday's storms.

Meteorologist Ken Widelski with the weather service's Sterling, Virginia, office, said Wednesday that radar during the storm and initial damage reports on the ground near Crownsville raise the possibility that a twister may have struck. Tornado warnings in that area were issued Tuesday.

He and another National Weather Service worker will survey the damage. A final determination will be made in a few days.
