The National Weather Service said the tornado that swept through Delaware on Tuesday was a record.
Tropical storm Isaiah, which hit the east coast, brought winds at speeds in excess of 100 km per hour and caused several tornadoes to form. One of the tornadoes turned out to be a record one – it covered an incredible distance of 30 km.
The tornado passed in close proximity to apartment buildings in Kent, leaving the longest trail of any tornado in history since the 1950s.
There is no exact data on damage yet. It is also reported that no one was seriously injured.
