Tornado Was EF-0 In North Providence, EF-1 In Lincoln

(Lincoln, RI)  --  The National Weather Service is updating its documentation of a tornado event in Rhode Island on Tuesday.  The weather service says the tornado initially touched down in North Providence as an EF-0 scale, and from there, damage was discontinuous with only a few treetops snapped and downed branches as the tornado headed toward the southwest part of Lincoln.  Meteorologists say in Lincoln, the twister upgraded to an EF-1 with wind speeds of 90 to 100 miles per hour, causing extensive damage on a couple of streets, before it went back down to an EF-0 and lifted.  The entire event lasted less than five minutes.  The same storm cell later produced an EF-1 tornado in Norton, Massachusetts.
