Tornado confirmed in Limington

GRAY, Maine (AP) -- The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in the town of Limington, Maine.

Meteorologist Tom Hawley said a team is in the field Tuesday to make measurements and to track the tornado's path. Trees were uprooted, power lines were knocked down and a teenage boy was struck by lightning in Naples as the thunderstorm roared through the area Monday.

Tornadoes are supposed to be a rarity in Maine but there have been several recent reports of twisters.

Earlier this month, a tornado touched down in St. Albans. Hawley said there also were reports Sunday of a waterspout over Sebago Lake but it caused no damage and couldn't be confirmed.
