Deadly tornadoes in Massachusetts

Downtown Springfield, Mass., USA 02 June 11 (AP)

At least four people are believed dead following a series of tornadoes that ripped through much of Massachusetts yesterday.

The rare twisters destroyed dozens of homes and businesses in Springfield, the state’s third largest city.

Officials say residents were given just 10 minutes warning of a possible tornado and the state’s governor says it’s a miracle more weren’t injured or killed.

Tornadoes are relatively rare in New England but one that hit Worcester, Massachusetts in 1953, killed 94 and injured more than 1,000.
