The National Weather Service says a tornado did strike in eastern Connecticut on Wednesday.
The weather service said an EF-1 tornado was confirmed near Andover, Coventry and Mansfield in Tolland County.
A survey team found an 11-mile broken damage path from Andover to Mansfield. The tornado touched down at about 5:20 p.m. in Andover and lifted in Mansfield about a half-hour later. Maximum wind speeds were estimated at about 90 mph.
No injuries were reported, but trees were uprooted and snapped off. The only structural damage noted was to a sheet-metal shed.
Local TV stations showed photos and videos taken by people in Mansfield of what looked like a tornado moving through the southern part of town.
Weather Service officials were in Connecticut last week and confirmed that three small, brief tornadoes touched down July 1 in Greenwich, Stamford, Enfield and Windsor Locks.
