million dollars worth of damage on Friday as it touched down just before 6 PM. Washington's Capital Weather Gang produced this graphic of the tornado and severe weather reports around the DC corridor from Friday's storm. The tornadoes were officially classified as weak twisters -- rated EF-0 or EF-1 on the enhanced Fujita scale -- still enough though to rip up the neighborhood and cause damage to some locations.
