Washington, D.C., residents received a tornado warning Thursday afternoon for the second time in two weeks as city residents hunkered down for the worst.

The threat of a tornado diminished rapidly over the course of several minutes, though a massive thunderstorm brought damaging winds throughout the city, the National Weather Service noted in a warning. The warning also noted that wind gusts up to 68 miles per hour were reported near Washington Reagan National Airport. DC residents faced a tornado watch in April, according to the U.S. National Weather Service.

DC residents were posting video images and pictures of the storm as it passed through. A thunderstorm warning for parts of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., remain in effect until 8 pm Thursday night.

The National Weather Service’s warning comes less than a day after a tornado rolled through Jefferson City, Missouri on Wednesday, killing three and injuring several people.

Multiple tornadoes also hit Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas earlier this week. These tornadoes follow record-low 2018 twister activity across the U.S. In Alabama this year, 23 people died in March when powerful tornadoes touched down. The deaths included children, and there was huge damage to the affected areas.
