Recovery efforts are underway Tuesday after a confirmed tornado ripped through Salisbury Monday afternoon.

The National Weather service declared the weather event an EF 1 Tornado with winds 100-105 miles per hour.

This latest storm comes just weeks after an EF2 tornado caused major damage across Kent Island on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

As with the previous storm, officials have not said at this time that any lives were lost and have not reported any injuries.

The storm hit a roughly two-mile area, throwing cars through the air, destroying buildings, twisting metal off of structures and snapping trees and power lines.

Chunks of concrete littered the area near Salisbury university.

Multiple businesses took heavy damage in the storm and some said they could feel the ground shake during the tempest.

"[It was a] rumbling roar," says Buzz Carragher, the owner of Salisbury Cycle and Fitness. "Like a freight train."

Carragher's store was behind a warehouse that was torn apart thanks to the devastating weather.
