'Weak' Tornado Passes Through Part of Somers

The National Weather Service says a weak EF zero tornado touched down in Somers last night.

The twister was on the ground for less than 10 minutes.

The storm left a path about 75-yards wide and almost 2-miles long.

One person told the weather service that they heard a loud whirring noise, and saw the tops of trees flying by a house.

The National Weather Service issued a damage report.

The storm took down trees, and did minor damage to some houses.

No injuries were reported.
