CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP/AP) - The National Weather Service says it will investigate whether damage during severe thunderstorms in parts of Connecticut was from brief tornadoes.
Bob Thompson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass., said Wednesday evening that there were two possible tornadoes, one in the Tolland area and the other in the Coventry-Storrs area. He said, "We can't be entirely sure."
According to the NWS Boston twitter , the survey team will conduct their investigation starting in Tolland and then going to Andover, Mansfield, and Conventry-Storrs area on Thursday.

Last week, the weather service determined that three small, brief tornadoes touched down July 1st in Greenwich, Stamford, Enfield and Windsor Locks.
During Wednesday's storm, eastern Hampden County was under a Tornado Warning and a Severe Thunder Storm Warning, but there were no reports of any damage or any sightings of any tornados.
