NWS: Weak tornado strikes Stoughton

Posted: Updated:
STOUGHTON, Mass. -

The National Weather Service said Friday that a preliminary survey shows a small tornado touched down in Massachusetts.

The weak tornado, an EF0 on the enhanced Fujita scale that measures tornado intensity, with wind gusts from 65 to 85 mph, touched down in the area of Washington Street in Stoughton at about 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.

A series of storms moved across the area southwest of Boston at that time.

Employees of an RV dealership in Stoughton said they saw a funnel cloud come through the area that was strong enough to move campers weighing several tons a few feet and rip a garage door off its hinges.

There were no reports of injuries.
