Tornado watch lifted

February 28, 2011

A tornado watch for Washington County and surrounding counties, including the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, has been lifted, according to the National Weather service.

The watch was issued at 9 a.m. Monday and was to have been in effect until 4 p.m. as a line of strong storms moved through the region.


A tornado watch means that weather conditions are favorable for a tornado, said Brian LaSorsa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

He said a tornado watch is a step below a tornado warning, which means a tornado is imminent.

Also today, flooding and strong thunderstorms are possible in Franklin and Fulton counties in Pennsylvania, the National Weather Service said.
