On June 1, 2011 Springfield, MA was hit by a tornado! It crossed right over the Connecticut River and interstate 91. The storm system that produced this tornado ended up producing more all the way through western MA along the Connecticut border. Due to the highly populated area this tornado was recorded in a number of perspectives that day. I remember actually seeing the tornado cross the Connecticut River live on TV and because Interstate 91 runs along the river at that point, it was an area I have traveled through a dozen times! I was in shock and awe when i saw the tornado swirl across the highway. Below are some of the videos from that day.
