Less than two hours after a tornado touched down in Springfield, The Weather Channel (TWC) has confirmed a second tornado in nearby Westfield, Massachusetts.

It was on the ground as of 6:15 p.m. Eastern Time and The Weather Channel has urged those nearby to "TAKE COVER."

Westfield is located just west of Springfield and this tornado could wreak havoc on the same area affected earlier. While the tornado earlier this evening passed through downtown Springfield, this one headed toward Chicopee and North Springfield.

This is part of a larger storm system that prompted tornado watches across the eastern United States.
