Tornado in Maryland kills at least two
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- A tornado ripped through suburban Washington on Monday, killing two students on the University of Maryland campus and injuring at least 50 other people in the area, officials said.
Several buildings were damaged when the tornado touched down about 5:20 p.m. About 16,000 residents in the area lost power, Potomac Electric Power Co. officials said.
Gov. Parris Glendening declared a state of emergency in Prince George's and Howard counties, allowing state crews to help victims and clean up the damage.
The university evacuated six dormitories, displacing 3,000 students. Those who could not return to their rooms spent the night at a nearby recreation center. The university canceled Tuesday classes.
