One of the earliest warnings (seen above) was issued around 2:50 p.m. on Monday by the National Weather Service’s station in Gray, Maine. The station monitors much of Maine and New Hampshire. (You can keep an eye on the area’s active warnings by clicking here.)
Because of the tornado alert in Grafton County on Monday evening, staff and shoppers at the Hanover Co-op Food Store were escorted to the basement of the store for roughly 20 minutes until the danger passed.
The warning will remain in effect until 10 p.m. tonight.
UPDATE: The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a warning about possible flooding in the state.
7:30 PM – the threat for severe thunderstorms has ended, but there will still be some concern for heavy rain and localized flooding over the northern portions of New York and Vermont through about midnight. #vtwx#nywxpic.twitter.com/9kJW6BLW3Z

Valley News article from this past weekend, by John Lippman, with James M. Patterson photos:
Not long ago, there used to be a lot of soot inside the Vermont Castings foundry, where workers would come off shifts coated in black, looking like they had just emerged from a coal mine.
But carbon particles don’t mix well with $450,000 Swedish-made robots, let alone people.
That’s one of the stark changes at the Randolph maker of wood-burning stoves, which has just completed a plant upgrade that converted what had resembled a Victorian-like era mill into a clean, energy-efficient manufacturing plant. It’s a factory where knowing how to program a computer-operated grinding and drilling machine is as critical a skill as safely pouring molten iron into sand molds.
“We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs,” Bill Corey, a drill and grind manager and 20-year company veteran, said about the corporate ownership changes Vermont Castings has experienced since its founding in 1975.
John Leppo, of ACT Robots, fine tunes the programming of a robotic arm recently installed at the Vermont Castings foundry in Randolph, Vt., on Thursday, June 14, 2018. The system will lift the heaviest stove pieces made at the foundry, drill holes and grind rough edges. “I’m trying to get to a point here when people don’t have to lift more than 25 pounds,” said Vice President and General Manager Jeffrey Nelb. Despite some increased automation, the 100-employee plant is looking for ten new hires. (Valley News – James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.

Nora Doyle-Burr’s above-the-fold cover story on an ongoing Me Too investigation into Dartmouth professors was really well done. I’d encourage anyone with info to reach out to her. Contact info here: pic.twitter.com/b7ON4NskqK
All of the @VNewsUV reported stories were so good and interesting. Even this one I planned to just skim because it was about the finances of a local airport ended up being really great and informative. pic.twitter.com/B4v4lVeUBV
The opinion page was also really good and informative, relevant to the news stories that preceded it. Was struck by this illustration, considering it’s high school graduation week here. Powerful and brave. pic.twitter.com/ZxFwJfM26G
