No, not for servere weather like this. This stuff you would see in “tornado alley”. What surprised me was how the CT river became the scene of this big tornado.

To my knowledge, the last tornado outbreak in MA as bad as today’s was the Worcester tornado of June 3, 1953.

According to some of the dirtbags in DU land, Alabama got hit because it was a red state.

Wonder what they think about this?

Correction: That was June 9, 1953.

I was a 6-yr old kid in Boston at the time. We drove out to see the damage.

Have watched the river video 20 times or so; can’t get over how the inflow pulls spray out of the river. River looked like the Gulf of Mexico during a cat 5 hurricane (which is similar velocity).

I crossed that river every day when I lived there.
The powerful vortex of the tornado over the river is freaky.

I had often gone up to Springfield to go see the basketball hall of fame, both old and the much more newer building. Makes me wonder how much, if any damage hit that building.

You can bet that Obastard will be right there for a speech/photo op.

I was at work, in Westborough, this afternoon when hubby called to tell me about the tornado hitting Springfield. We were making plans at work about what to do if it hit close to us. The Asst. Mgr. had her smart-phone and kept it on weather.com so we could watch where the storms were going on the Doppler. We had some really intense rain for a bit, but that was about it. It just looked really bad for a while.

I got home about 6:30, and a couple of hours later, another storm came right over our house with really intense lightning, but almost no wind!

In that last video the News Team Women was a block North of where Mt. Carmel Church and "Lafiorentina's Bakery" is.

Best Canoli's on the planet.

One hit the airport in Windsor Locks CT in the late eighties/early nineties. That's just south of Springfield.

Tore up the air museum pretty bad too
