Cyclone In Revere

Two days ago an early morning tornado stuck Revere Beach.

Thankfully tree were no serious injuries from the EF-2 outburst, but winds gusted to 120 mph in a 3/8ths of a mile swarth, leaving residents without power for several hours. While tornadoes are extremely rare along the Massachusetts coast, Revere Beach was once home to the Cyclone Roller Coaster, which was the highest ride in the world until 1964.

A fire burned it to stumps in 1969.

It was a wicked ride.
