Officials: Tornado struck central New York

VERONA, N.Y. (AP) The National Weather Service says a tornado packing winds up to 100 mph touched down in central New York.

The storm hit the Oneida County Town of Verona about 10 p.m. Tuesday. The weather service says it left a nine-mile path of damage into the neighboring Town of Westmoreland, knocking down road signs and tearing the roof from a gas station.

Preliminary results indicate it was an EF-1 tornado, and it's the second twister to hit upstate New York in the past month.

An EF3-rated tornado with winds up to 140 mph tore through Duanesburg in rural Schenectady County in late May. It flipped over at least two tractor-trailer rigs, overturned two 5-ton storage units, leveled one home, and knocked down trees and power lines but caused no injuries.
