A storm last week produced two tornadoes in Vermont, the National Weather Service said Tuesday, confirming the second twister.

The newly confirmed tornado touched down in Waltham on Monday, July 18, a town over from where the other tornado was confirmed, in Addison.

That tornado was rated an EF-1; the Waltham tornado was an EF-0, according to the National Weather Service's office in Burlington. For context, Vermont averages one or two tornadoes a year.

The tornado touched down around 6:50 p.m. in Addison, a half mile southwest of the intersection of routes 22A and 17. It ended about two minutes later a half mile northeast of the same intersection.

An EF0 tornado has sustained wind gusts of 65-85 mph. An EF1 tornado has sustained wind gusts of 86-110.

Tornado warnings had been issued for parts of New Hampshire and Maine during the day's storms, but not Vermont. Another EF-1 tornado was confirmed in New Hampshire that day.
