The National Weather Service in Norton confirmed a tornado touched down in Lincoln, Rhode Island earlier in the day. Additional survey work will be needed on Wednesday to assess any further damage, according to officials.
The NWS also says they will visit a section of North Providence to see if a tornado also touched down there.
"It was loud," said Marisa Crowell, of Lincoln, RI. "There was booms. I heard a few booms and like a snap and the lights went out."
Crowell said she found trees all over her driveway and one that went right through the windshield of her car.
The tornado touched down in Rhode Island just before 4 p.m. as a string of violent thunderstorms rolled through. At least a dozen homes were damaged and there's debris everywhere.
"It was crazy, like something I have never seen," said Lisa Petitto, of Lincoln, RI. "We have structural damage to the home. Trees in the back all the furniture went flying the lawn furniture flying into the windows. It wasn't even a two-minute episode and it just devastated everything."
Ray Douleh lost a patio table, a number of trees and a couple of shingles from his roof.
Firefighters said they had a hard time getting into the neighborhood because of all the debris blocking the road.
"Companies had to walk a quarter mile just to get to this area we were met by many residents who stated they believe they just saw a tornado from there we did assessments at every building to see the damage," said Lincoln Fire District Chief Timothy Walsh.
At around 5 p.m., more than 3,000 were left without power, according to MEMA as downed trees compromised power lines.
According to MEMA officials, while there was some damage to parts of the state, there were no significant damages nor injuries reported.
