The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington DC has
confirmed an EF-0 tornado at Thomas Jefferson High School in
Lincolnia Virginia.

The tornado touched down briefly just south of the softball field,

shipping container was lofted over 100 yards as the tornado 
crossed the softball field moving northeast over an adjacent
athletic field. The tornado then lifted over the northeastern 
part of the school property.
