Twisters Confirmed in Maine and New Hampshire



    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The National Weather Service says it has
    confirmed preliminary findings that two twisters touched down on
    June 5 in Maine and New Hampshire.


    Forecasters say a tornado with wind speeds of 60 to 70 mphtouched down briefly in the town of Gorham in northern New
    Hampshire, uprooting several trees and damaging two homes.
    They say another tornado with an estimated maximum wind speed of
    90 mph touched down in Paris in western Maine and traveled more
    than four miles through Oxford and Hebron. A camper was flipped and
    hundreds of trees were uprooted along a path that went mostly
    through the woods.
    A third tornado touched down in Craftsbury, Vt., causing roof
    damage. Forecasters say there was another funnel cloud near,
    Auburn, Maine, but it didn't touch down.
