Tornado tears through Revere Beach homes

Posted: Updated:
REVERE, Mass. (WHDH) -

Revere Beach residents are left picking up the pieces after an EF2 tornado tore through their town Monday.

Homes along Route 107 had their roofs torn off and homeowners found bits and pieces of their homes strewn across backyards and roadways.

Resident Patty Carrabes returned to a home where the roof had been sliced off at the second floor before sailing across the back yard.

“I just came home to this,” she said. “We have nothing.”

The Carrabes have lived in the home for over 60 years and said they are devastated by the damage to their home.

The tornado, which had maximum winds of 120 miles per hour, was on the ground for two miles and was three-eighths of a mile wide. It toppled trees, crushed cars and snapped utility poles in half as it tore through the beach-side community.

Crews were hard at work Monday afternoon, picking up debris and working to restore power.
