Weather Service: Tornado Hit Homes Where 4 Died

(AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado destroyed the homes in upstate New York where four people were killed.


Barbara Watson, the meteorologist leading the agency's survey team says that the violent winds Tuesday were at least 100 mph and reached undetermined higher speeds to cause the damage they're seeing in the Madison County town of Smithfield, between Syracuse and Utica.





She says Wednesday that one two-story home is gone, the structure blown away and leaving only the foundation.

Authorities are scheduled to release more details later Wednesday.
