Multiple reports of downed trees have also come in across the region. A fallen tree also killed an 89-year-old man in Finksburg who was in his driveway as a storm passed by.
Also in Finksburg, a deputy had to detour traffic around a tree on Deer Park Road. Power lines and a transformer were also tangled on the ground.
The National Weather Service has not said whether the damage in Finksburg was caused by a tornado.
Massive trees also slammed into the ground across town at the Beaver Creek Estates, crushing a car.
In Baltimore, WJZ caught up with Terri Kenney, who had a tree fall on his roof.
“I mean it was short, but it was wicked,” Kenney said. “Every tree on this street was bending.”
