In 2004 when Hurricane Ivan hit the DC area, there were many active tornadoes when it passed over. In daylight I safely watched one of them go through part of our county from a scenic overlook. It was the only tornado I've ever seen. As it moved along, every 15-30 secs I saw greenish blue flashes go upwards as it knocked down power lines. There was almost no damage outside of the tornado path. So maybe you will be spared. I found 2 news stories about that Hurricane. This is a quote from one of the stories:
"According to David Manning, warning coordinator meteorologist from the National Weather Service, after tropical storms and hurricanes make landfall, they sometimes produce more tornadoes than normal."
Another story excerpt on the Ivan tornados:
"38 of 58 tornadoes that day touched down across Virginia. On the other side of the Potomac, six touched down or passed into Maryland." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/09/17/hurricane-ivan-and-virginias-largest-tornado-outbreak-september-17-2004/?utm_term=.9a2c4bf30eec
Off topic: Are those skylights on that house roof? If so, I've seen something like that advertised and I'm considering getting at least one at some point.
