Tornado touched down in Lewis County this week

Local News

It’s being classified as “weak,” but the National Weather Service says a tornado did touch down in Lewis County earlier this week.

Officials say the twister hit the ground in a cornfield off just outside of Constableville around 6:30 Tuesday evening–a portion of the field was damaged as a result.

The funnel cloud was apparently 10 yards wide and 10 yards long and it’s estimated to have traveled between 65 and 85 miles per hour.

It’s rated as the lowest possible classification of a tornado by experts with the National Weather Service.
