Today, a third tornado was confirmed in Connecticut from a storm on Monday.

The National Weather Service says a weak tornado touched down in Enfield Monday afternoon.

It was about 50-yards wide, and brought winds of up to 65-miles per hour.

That is the minimum speed for a storm to qualify as the weakest classification of tornado, and E-F zero.

There was scattered tree damage on Glen Arden Lane, crossing Hazard Avenue, and on to Heron Road.

Previously, the weather service confirmed two tornadoes touched down, one in towns to the south and west of Enfield, and the other in Stamford and Greenwich.
