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 mph
touched 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.
