Springfield Tornado

This only happens once every 16 years in Massachusetts, but a tornado touched down in Western Massachusetts, slicing through Springfield and its suburbs late yesterday afternoon. At least three people were killed and dozens more were injured.

If you traveled northward on I-84 to Massachusetts yesterday, you had to deal with stop and go traffic as a result of the tornado. Its effects were felt as far south as Union, Thompson, and Stafford Springs.
