GRAY — The National Weather Service in Gray is planning to send out survey teams on Thursday to investigate whether tornadoes touched down Wednesday in areas of Western Maine and the foothills extending to Somerset County.

Meterologist Bob Marine said the Weather Service received several unconfirmed reports of funnel clouds and tornadoes from residents of those areas.

Marine said Wednesday’s weather produced thunderstorms and large hail.

There were reports of baseball sized hail falling in the Kingfield region. Golf ball sized chunks of hail also fell in Livermore Falls, Canton and just south of Lewiston.

Lightning struck homes in Casco and Raymond Wednesday night. No injuries were reported.
