WINDHAM, Vt. (AP) — The National Weather Service says a tornado that recently hit Vermont was the state's first since 2012.
WPTZ-TV reports the high-end EF1 tornado that was on the ground for less than a mile in Windham on Aug. 21 received an estimated maximum wind speed of 105 to 110 miles per hour.
The tornado violently snapped or uprooted dozens of trees and left several homes with roof and shingle damage.
Vermont's last confirmed tornado was May 29, 2012 in Orleans County.
This story has been corrected to show the name of the media outlet is WPTZ-TV, not WCAX-TV.
