Oneida County, N.Y. (WHAM) - The National Weather service confirms a tornado occurred southwest of Verona and near Vernon just before 5 p.m. Friday.

That's not far from the Turning Stone Resort Casino.

Video appearing to show a funnel cloud and evidence left behind by the storm appeared to indicate an element of rotation. A team from the National Weather Service confirmed that was the case.

The NWS says the storm survey is still ongoing.

A final assessment is expected to be completed sometime Saturday afternoon.
