A strong cell moved through Baltimore County Friday evening, damaging several homes east of Towson
No one was hurt -- but residents say there were some close calls. Roger Voigt was at home with his son, his son's wife and their baby.
“All of a sudden the trees just started flying around wildly in the backyard, and then this amazing total whiteout occurred,” Voigt said.
A white-out and a roaring sound, that sent all of them running into a central hallway.
"It was just swirling around sideways. It was like it was spinning around and power washing the house sideways. It was absolutely amazing I've never seen anything like that. It was just total white,” Voigt said.
He lost a large tree -- but there was no damage to the home. Leslie Witscher wasn't so lucky. “We have a huge hole in our roof,” she said.
The tree swaying in her yard is what told her trouble was coming. “I looked at my dog and I said I think we better head to the basement,” she said. “And the minute we got down to the bottom of the basement steps we heard a huge thud. Our plans for the weekend have changed a little bit but everybody's fine."
