One lone thunderstorm caused big problems Tuesday for parts of central and southern Vermont. At 3:45pm, a tornado warning was issued for parts of Addison and Rutland counties as a powerful thunderstorm showed signs of rotation on radar. As the storm moved to the southeast, wind damage reports began to roll in, as well as numerous large hail reports.

Read Matt Austin's report from Rutland, where large hail and flooding caused the city to stand still for a short while.

As of Tuesday evening, there was no definite report of a tornado...not many claim to have actually seen a tornado. A difficult call to say whether one touched down. Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Burlington plans to survey the damage path to assess the damage more closely. From that, they can determine if a tornado did, in fact, touch down somewhere along the storms path.

See all the storm reports from the local National Weather Service office here.

This follows another storm investigation last weekend, which prompted an early morning tornado warning for northeast Vermont. That storm turned out to have produced a microburst, not a tornado. Read more by clicking here.
