A tornado touchdown earlier in the week has been confirmed in a Worcester County town.

The National Weather Service completed a storm survey in Hardwick Friday evening and confirmed the EF1 tornado touched down South of the middle of Patril Hollow Road Tuesday.

The tornado then moved Northeast, crossing the roads and eventually ending in a wooded area.

The tornado touched down at around 4:03 p.m. and lasted just three minutes until about 4:06 p.m.. Although it just lasted just three minutes, it brought 90 to 95 mile per hour winds and was 350 yards wide.

The path of the tornado stretched .7 miles, and no one was hurt or injured.

However, it did cause quite a bit of damage with more than 150 trees either uprooted or snapped on Patrill Hollow Road.

Additionally, shingles and the metal cover to a pump were blown off at an old abandoned gas station.
