MONSON (CBS) — Debris from Wednesday’s tornadoes flew farther than just a couple of neighborhoods.

At least two pieces of debris flew several dozen miles to other towns.

Gov. Deval Patrick said Thursday morning that a checkbook from Monson had flown to Milton. That’s a trip of at least 80 miles.

Carrie Kelley wrote to CBSBoston.com from her home in Foxboro and said she found a receipt in her pool Thursday morning from a mechanic in Brimfield. It was printed for a customer in Palmer. Those towns are about 60 to 65 miles from Foxboro.
