ROME, N.Y. -- The National Weather Service now confirms that it was a tornado that damaged an Oneida County home last month.
Officials say an EF-1 tornado touched down in Rome back on July 24th, eventually hitting a home on Lamphear Road.
The newly built home was knocked off its foundation and an attached garage suffered heavy damage, with debris blown as far as 200 yards away.
The National Weather Service estimates wind speeds reached 110 miles per hour and the tornado traveled a path about two tenths of a mile long.
No one was hurt in the storm.
