Severe Tornado Hits Springfield, MA

The Newburyport, MA area (where I live) has been under a tornado watch since this afternoon and the watch has now been extended to 11:00 pm. Just a few hours ago a huge tornado hit Springfield, MA. NBC News reports:

Tornados are so rare in this area. I’m hoping they pass us by, right now we’re under a severe thunderstorm warning…

Four people have been killed by the tornado in the Springfiled area. Governor Patrick has declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts as more storms move their way through the state.
