Ok, southern New Englander's....the second "unprecendented" severe weather outbreak with severe rotating thunderstorms, tornadoes and waterspouts in southern New England within one week in the month of October! This time occurring early in the morning with severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings issued for southern Washington County including Block Island, RI, and also parts of the Cape including Falmouth, Barnstable, Mashpee, Tillsbury, Sandwich, Bourne, etc. There was reported damage in North Stonington and at Fisher's Island.
In all my years of following, tracking and recording extreme weather events in southern New England, this is the first time I can recall extreme weather of this rarity occurring this frequently and at this time of the year in our area. It is very interesting in that this all comes off a very active, damaging and costly Atlantic and Pacific hurricane season. I am seeing a definite "uptick" in extreme weather globally in 2018 as well as in our local area.
