Dramatic video has emerged of the apparent tornado that blew through Salisbury, Md., on Monday around 1:40 p.m. The tornado overturned three cars, downed trees and damaged buildings. No serious injuries were reported.

In the video above, a security camera at Hopperís Tap House captures a car cartwheeling from the parking lot into a roadway, carried by the stormís violent winds.

Hopperís Tap House is on South Salisbury Boulevard (also known as Route 13), just south of Salisbury proper. The cars were flipped in the parking lot of the Pavilion at 1400 South, according to WBOC, the CBS television affiliate in Salisbury. One of the cars that flipped landed on top of two others.

1. I lived in Salisbury in the early 70s. I know twisters can happen anywhere

but I never would've thought the Eastern Shore would get hit.
