...The 10-yard-wide twister (click here) left a half-mile path of damage in its wake, moving from Naval Support Facility Dahlgren, across US Route 301 near the Harry Nice Memorial Bridge, and ending up at Barnesfield Park.

Security camera footage showed a narrow vortex flipping four cars in a parking at around 8:20 a.m.

Federal Aviation Administration radars from Joint Base Andrews and Reagan National Airport confirmed the security camera footage, according to the NWS.

The tornado also damaged trees along Higley Road and uprooted a large pine tree, which fell near a visitor center near U.S. Route 301....

The death toll in Texas is now five from the tornadoes there. One of the tornadoes was upgraded to an F-4 from an F-3.
