GRAFTON, N.H. - The National Weather Service is investigating whether or not a tornado touched down in New Hampshire Thursday.

According to local fire departments, Thursday night's severe storms downed hundreds of trees in the Central New Hampshire town of Grafton. The National Weather Service in Gray, Maine will send two forecasters to survey the damage on Saturday. A determination will then be made as to what caused the extensive damage.

The line of storms that hit New Hampshire is the same one that swept through Vermont Thursday evening, downing many trees in Rutland County and leaving over 10,000 Vermont utility customers in the dark.

One day after those storms, a separate system spawned a waterspout over Lake Winnipesaukee Friday. A waterspout is tornado over water.
