A waterspout-turned-tornado tore through Smith Island, Maryland, on Thursday, August 4, damaging multiple homes, according to local reports. Maryland Gov Larry Hogan said that damage-assessment teams were on site and that the state would provide “full resources … to assist with the response.” This footage shows the waterspout approaching the secluded island, which is home to fewer than 300 people and can only be accessed by boat or helicopter. By Friday afternoon, more than 21,000 households in Maryland remained without power following the severe storm, according to officials. Credit: Greg Anderson via Storyful
