A little bit west of me here in the Adirondacks, some houses were leveled. They say they are investigating whether it was a tornado....duh! Started getting tornado warnings in the afternoon. There are branches down all over the place and many power outages. Warnings were for winds in excess of 80 mph although I did not see anything like that here, maybe 50. Around dark there was a constant rumbling from thunderstorms.

Back around the early 80s, when I was over in the White Mtns. of NH, I don't remember exactly which year, there was a huge blowdown. Where the wind blew in channels down mountainsides, large swaths of trees, mostly Spruces, were completely flattened. It blew the roof right off the Inn on Loon Mountain and placed it in the parking lot. No tornado, just a wild wind event. Mother Nature can be a ***** even without global warming:)
