The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has determined that two more tornadoes touched down in New Jersey last week.

Both were EF0 tornadoes, the weakest strength for a tornado.

The first tornado touched down in Hightstown with 75 mph winds. The second tornado touched down two hours later in Millville, with winds around 70 mph.

The service had previously said that another EF0 tornado touched down in Springfield on Wednesday, ripping a roof off of a building.

New Jersey has had a total of eight tornadoes this year. The all-time record for the state was in 1989, when 17 tornadoes were confirmed to hit the state for the year.
