CARIBOU  — The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down during a severe thunderstorm storm Wednesday night in northern Maine, the second time in a week that a tornado has been verified in the state.

Meteorologists say a tornado packing winds of 65 mph to 85 mph touched down at about 6:22 p.m. near Little Madawaska Lake north of Caribou and took an intermittent path that ended about 10 miles away.

The weather service says nobody was injured, but the twister knocked down trees and damaged and destroyed barns and other small buildings.

Another tornado was confirmed last week in the small Somerset county town of Embden during a severe thunderstorm.
