NWS: Tuesday's weather created 5 tornadoes in New York, Connecticut

Severe storms possible Tuesday evening

The National Weather Service has confirmed that two tornadoes touched down in Connecticut Tuesday.

The weather service said the tornadoes had estimated peak winds of 157 kilometres per hour and 177 km/h.

The agency determined a tornado with maximum wind speeds of 95 miles per hour traveled a 0.7-mile path through Winsted; another struck near the Barkhamsted Reservoir, but its wind speeds and path couldn't be determined.

Both tornadoes caused downed power lines and uprooted trees in their paths. More than 120,000 homes and businesses lost electricity.

The powerful storms that swept through New York's lower Hudson Valley spawned three tornadoes.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he's signed an emergency order that will give state agencies flexibility in helping cities and towns recover.

Nearby Brookfield was not hit by a tornado, but did see a "macroburst" with winds around 100 miles per hour.

The NWS completed a storm survey of the damage Wednesday night. Putnam County grappled with 144 closed roads.

Officials say meteotsunamis are driven by air-pressure disturbances often associated with fast-moving weather events, such as severe thunderstorms, squalls, and other storm fronts.
