BOSTON (CBS) – Several tornado warnings and a tornado watch were issued for parts of the South Coast and Cape Cod late Wednesday night into Thursday morning as remnants of Ida moved through the area.
The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings for parts of Barnstable, Bristol, Dukes and Plymouth Counties beginning at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.
For about three hours, tornado warnings were issued for parts of Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard as the storm moved northeast.
A tornado watch was issued for the Cape and Islands, but that expired at 7 a.m.
More than 12,000 customers were without power in Massachusetts as of 7 a.m.
Tom Lyons, Public Engagement Manager at MEMA, said there have not been any reports of major damage. “We’ll definitely be looking in the daylight hours to see if any of these tornado warnings caused a damage causing tornado,” Lyons said.
Flash flood warnings are also in effect for most of eastern Massachusetts.
