On the evening of Wednesday, June 5, 2024, an EF-0 tornado
touched down 2 miles north-northwest of Eldersburg, Maryland. The
National Weather Service conducted a damage survey and noted an
initial area of tree damage near the intersection of Tanglewood
Drive and Covington Court. A rotational damage signature was
evident as tree damage was pointed in opposite directions.

The tornadic storm continued its track toward the northeast with
additional damage observed along Bartholow Road near Sarah Drive.
This included multiple large trees which were uprooted, one of
which fell onto a house. Further damage was noted up the road
just north of the intersection of Bartholow Road and Cherry
Tree Lane. Dozens of trees had large sections and branches
snapped off and topped. Observed tree damage was spread out
into multiple directions.

Several minutes later, the tornado passed over Morgan Run before
causing additional damage to the Lakeland Heights area. A home
was seen with siding and shingle damage near Sun Berry Court
and Lake Forest Court. Multiple large broken tree branches were noted
behind the home. A few trees were damaged along Legacy Drive.

The damage signature to the northeast became more intermittent in
nature as the tornado began to weaken. By 8:13 PM EDT, the final
damage point was noted about 1 mile northeast of Gamber MD.
Along Pin Oak Drive, a mid-sized tree was uprooted with multiple
downed tree branches. Thereafter, the circulation dissipated
while approaching MD State Route 140. No damage was noted along
Route 140. A circulation evident on NWS Doppler weather radar
corroborated this track as well.

The National Weather Service would like to thank the Carroll
County Emergency Management Division for their assistance with
this damage survey.
