The discovery of a trampoline lodged 90 feet above the ground in the limbs of a pine tree gave National Weather Service ground surveyors some of their evidence, the agency reports, that a small tornado descended Monday night on Colton’s Point.

The one-minute sweep by the twister rated at EF-0, the weakest category, likely came from a waterspout that crossed the Potomac River and reached the waterfront community at about 9 p.m. that day, according to an agency report, and the ground surveyors also found minor damage during their Tuesday visit to trees and roofs, including a few shingles blown off structures. A tree fell on power lines on Beach Road.

The trampoline went airborne from outside a residence next to the post office on Colton Point Road, the agency reports, and two large wooden play sets were blown over, including one that was dragged about 15 feet. No injuries were reported.
