HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Experts with the National Weather Service will be viewing storm damage in eastern Connecticut to determine whether two tornadoes touched down.

Weather Service meteorologist Bob Thompson says there was a possible tornado in the Tolland area and another in the Coventry-Mansfield area Wednesday afternoon. Local TV stations showed photos and videos taken by people in Mansfield of what looked like a tornado moving through the southern part of town.

No injuries were reported. There were downed trees in Tolland, Coventry and Mansfield, and a barn was damaged in Coventry.

A Weather Service crew will be visiting the possible tornado sites Thursday.

Weather Service officials were in Connecticut last week and confirmed that three small, brief tornadoes touched down July 1 in Greenwich, Stamford, Enfield and Windsor Locks.
