Massachusetts Severe Weather

Know What to Do

During the summertime months deluging rainfall can cause urban and street flooding, thunderstorms produce deadly lightning, occasional severe thunderstorms add damaging winds, large hail, and rarely a tornado. The threat of tornado particularly affects the Grafton campus, which lies near the path of the deadly 1953 Worcester Tornado; however, tornados are possible on any of the US Tufts campuses.
