BOSTON (CBS) — There were three confirmed tornadoes in Massachusetts on Monday as remnants of Tropical Depression Henri passed through the area, prompting multiple tornado warnings. All three were EF0, brief, and created minimal damage, according to the National Weather Service.
The first touched down in Marlboro at 11:40 a.m. and traveled 0.75 miles with a maximum path width of 10 yards. Wind speeds got up to 65 MPH. It started just west of the Marlboro Water Treatment Center and went over a business park before dissipating near Cedar Hill Street. A tree on Cedar Hill fell on two cars.
