...NWS METEOROLOGISTS CONFIRM TORNADO DAMAGE NEAR GEORGETOWN IN
MADISON COUNTY NEW YORK...

The National Weather Service office in Binghamton NY is currently
conducting a storm survey for the area near Georgetown in Madison
County New York. The survey team has located some tornado damage
in a narrow path along Parker Hill Road. The damage is consistent
with an EF-1 rating on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, which
corresponds to wind speeds between 86-110 mph. This is only a
preliminary look at the damage in one location. The overall
tornado track is still being determined, and the final rating of
the tornado characteristics may change.

A final assessment including results of the survey are expected
to be completed and transmitted via a Public Information
Statement by late this afternoon.

It will also be available on our website at weather.gov/bgm.
