Record New England Tornado

The National Weather Service (NWS) has updated its review of the tornado which ripped through New Hampshire last week (July 24). The EF-2 tornado had a path 50 miles long, and the maximum width was over 1/3 of a mile. In an update to his coverage of the 2008 tornado season, The Weather Channel's Dr. Greg Forbes points out that this is the longest tornado track ever observed in New England, exceeding the infamous 1953 Worcester tornado by 4 miles. The longest previous track in New Hampshire was 15 miles (1955).
