BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s clear right now, but Tuesday night’s weather was a different story in parts of Maryland.  Lightning, hail and flash flooding unfolded in parts of the Baltimore area.

Mike Schuh reports various watches and warnings were in effect, and flooding was a serious concern in some communities.

A viewer captured cell phone video of what looks like a funnel cloud in Owings Mills, visible only when lightning strikes lit up the sky.

The National Weather Service issued multiple tornado warnings Tuesday night as reports came in.

But funnel clouds weren’t the only concern.  Heavy rain fell quickly across the region, bringing destructive hail with it.

All of that rain brought standing water to local roads, trapping some vehicles and prompting flash flood warnings.

Widespread power outages gave thousands of people flashbacks to June’s derecho when some were without power for several days.

At the height of Tuesday night’s storms, nearly 15,000 BGE customers were in the dark, with most in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

The National Service is still working to confirm if any tornadoes actually did touch down.
