The National Weather Service has confirmed a small tornado touched down in Burlington County over the weekend, leaving behind a trail of damaged trees.
Forecasters say a line of thunderstorms Saturday night produced the EF-1 twister about a mile from the Burlington County Fairgrounds. It’s estimated the tornado was packing winds of 80 to 90 mph.
Forecasters say the tornado followed a narrow path of nearly 8 miles, damaging trees north of Columbus-Jobstown Road, snapping tree limbs on Island Road, uprooting a tree on Juliustown-Georgetown Road and causing scattered tree damage before the twister dissipated near the Ocean County border.
No injuries were reported.
