Six tornado warnings were issued in Delaware and Maryland late Thursday into early Friday morning as Tropical Storm Elsa moved through the area.

A National Weather Service warning erroneously stated that a tornado had been confirmed near Sycamore, or 8 miles southwest of Georgetown, at 12:43 a.m. Friday. Meteorologist Dean Iovino later said radar had only suggested a tornado and that a survey would need to be completed in order to confirm any tornado. A survey will be done if any damage is reported, he said.

According to the weather service, tornadoes also may have developed:

  • At 11:48 p.m. Thursday near Snow Hill, Maryland.
  • At 12:04 a.m. Friday about 8 miles south of Ocean City, Maryland.
  • At 12:05 a.m. Friday near Newark, Maryland.
  • At 12:11 a.m. Friday near Gumboro.
  • At 12:28 a.m. Friday near Millville.

Residents in these areas should report any damage to their local emergency manager or police, Iovino said.

On Friday, central and southern Delaware is expected to get 2 to 3 inches of rainfall, Iovino said. The northern part of the state should get 1 to 2 inches of rain, maybe less, he said.

By mid-morning Friday, Elsa’s impact on Delaware should be over, Iovino said.
