STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Officials say they've completed house-to-house searches after a tornado touched down on Maryland's Eastern Shore and didn't find anyone trapped or in danger.

Queen Anne's County spokeswoman Elizabeth Malasky said by telephone Tuesday morning that officials didn't find anyone in trouble. Only one minor injury was reported Monday after a storm roared through communities east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

The National Weather Service says a tornado with winds that reached 125 mph (201 kph) touched down around 1:30 a.m. Monday near Stevensville. The storm downed trees, collapsed buildings and knocked out power about 9,000 customers. Power has been restored to all but about 75 customers by Tuesday morning as the cleanup effort continues.

The county has a shelter open and Maryland officials are also helping residents displaced because of the storm.
