BOSTON (WWLP) – The National Weather Service has confirmed that two tornadoes hit the eastern part of Massachusetts Tuesday following several tornado warnings.

The National Weather Service says a tornado was confirmed in Mattapoisett, which is located east of Rhode Island along the Massachusetts coast. The tornado was determined to be an EF-1 that traveled roughly a mile with winds peaking 95 miles per hour around 11:20 a.m.

A second tornado in Massachusetts was also confirmed Tuesday, an EF-0 in Barnstable roughly a half an hour later. The tornado traveled over a mile with 80 miles per hour winds.

Town Administrator Michael Lorenco told Nexstar station WPRI there was damaged to some homes and vehicles but nothing “too serious.” No injured have been reported. Trees could be seen snapped in half 10 to 20 feet above ground.

Tornado warnings were issued Tuesday morning between Worcester County and the Massachusetts coastline.
