It started as a water spout before hitting land.

So the question is ... do you continue eating your flapjacks once an earthquake begins?

My wife, kids, and I were eating at the local IHOP just down the road from our house, when everyone in the restaurant phones started going off with a shrill alarm.
I checked my phone and "tornado warning find shelter immediately" was the alert. Sure enough the sky turned grey and rain started to pour.
No one panicked everyone kept on enjoying their flap jacks. We very rarely have tornadoes around here. There hasn't been any damage or injuries reported, thankfully.
It's not am F5 or anything but like I said, rare for these parts so it was cool to see. We are right on the Chesapeake bay in Maryland. It started as a water spout before hitting land.
The picture was taken from a walking trail close to my house. Where the tornado is in this picture is right in my neighborhood.
