Tornado hits near Boston airport

This is a freak event.. a Tornado occurred on the Northeast side of Boston on Monday--it's not a place where tornadoes actively occur..

The Weather Channel details the radar images of the tornado as it happened..

It is the first tornado touchdown in the area, records say, since 1950. But interestingly, this is the third time this year Boston received a tornado warning..

The tornado was an EF2 on the scale.. Maximum winds were near 120 mph..

The town of Revere, where the tornado struck, has about 53,000 people.. it's awfully close to the Boston International Airport--about 16 minutes apart as a matter of fact.

The year (maybe decade) of 'rare' weather events are occurring so much.. rarity may not even be an issue anymore..
