Meteorologist says tornado did hit Arnold

October 16, 1995

A meteorologist for the National Weather Service confirmed yesterday what Anne Arundel County residents had suspected: A small but intense tornado cut a narrow swath through the community of Arnold Saturday night.

The twister, which ranged from 50 to 100 yards wide, packed winds of up to 95 miles an hour and vanished two miles and 4 minutes after it touched down in the development of Belvedere Heights, said Barry Goldsmith, an official from NWS headquarters in Sterling, Va., who toured the area yesterday.
