A National Weather Service storm survey team confirmed an EF1 tornado in Montgomery, Orange County, NY. The tornado likely touched down on the northwest side of the Orange County Airport near the Wallkill River. Straight line winds on the southern flank of the tornado likely caused tree damage at the Intersection of Route 211 and Canning Road as well as minor structural damage noted to two buildings on the airport. A temporary meteorological station, installed on the airfield to support this weekend’s airshow, measured sustained winds of 69 mph with a peak gust of 82 mph before the communications went out. The tornado moved east from near the river into the village of Montgomery, where damage was extensive along Weaver Street, as well as Chandler Lane. The tornado then continued eastward across Beaver Dam Road to Old Nealytown Road where it ended. The bulk of the damage consisted of large snapped and uprooted trees. The NWS would like to thank emergency management, law enforcement, broadcast media, spotters who shared video and photographic evidence, and reports from the general public through social media, in assisting in the survey and formulating this preliminary damage assessment.
