National Weather Service Confirms Two Tornadoes Hit Connecticut
The National Weather Service sent a team of experts into some of the hardest hit areas and you guessed it, two tornadoes touched down in Connecticut.
One of the tornadoes, an EF1 packing 100mph winds touched down in Southbury and moved along a 4.5-mile path into Oxford. Here's an example of what that looked like. FYI, there is no audio in this video.
The other EF1 tornado packing 110 mph winds cut a 9.5-mile path between Beacon Falls and Hamden. According to the NWS, Brookfield experienced a Macroburst, not a tornado, with sustained winds of 100mph. Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden was absolutely devastated by the EF1 tornado.
