VERONA, N.Y. (AP) — The National Weather Service says central New York was strafed by a tornado packing winds up to 100 mph.

The storm hit the Oneida County Town of Verona about 10 p.m. Tuesday. The weather service says it left a nine-mile path of damage into the neighboring Town of Westmoreland, knocking down road signs and tearing the roof from a gas station.

Preliminary results indicate it was an EF-1 tornado, and it’s the second twister to hit upstate New York in the past month.

An EF3-rated tornado with winds up to 140 mph tore through Duanesburg in rural Schenectady County in late May. It flipped over at least two tractor-trailer rigs, overturned two 5-ton storage units, leveled one home, and knocked down trees and power lines but caused no injuries.
