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 #nywx pic.twitter.com/9kJW6BLW3Z
