    NWS Investigating Possible Tornado in Mansfield

    The National Weather Service is investigating a possible tornado in Mansfield. (Published Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018)

    The National Weather Service investigated the cause of storm damage in Mansfield Tuesday and determined it was an EF0 tornado.

    The National Weather Service report said “trees came down in a very chaotic pattern” from the area just west of Storrs Road, or Route 195, between Cemetery Road and Bassetts Bridge Road and the tornado continued east-northeastward across Cemetery Road and ended just to the east of the southernmost portion of Echo Road.

    Several shingles were blown off of a roof on Storrs Road and they were found around 500 yards away, according to the National Weather Service.

    A resident in the area reported seeing a swirling mass of leaves and sticks.

    There have been eight tornadoes in Connecticut this year, making it one of the most active years for tornadoes on record.
