CAUGHT ON TAPE: E. Windsor Sports Dome Blows Away in Tornado
(Warning: Contains strong language. Audio may not be suitable for all audiences)
EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (WGGB) — Monday’s tornado destroyed the bubble at Sports World in East Windsor, and that moment was caught on tape.
The video, which was posted to YouTube by “gunnybullseye”, shows a motorist traveling northbound on Interstate 91, crossing through East Windsor when the material that made up the dome could be seen blowing in the wind.
A short time later, as the tornado broke apart and the winds dissipated, you can see the material come to a rest and envelope portions of the southbound side of I-91.
Moments before the damage hit, about 30 children and five counselors were inside the bubble, but were quickly moved to a hard, secure structure for safety.
No injuries were reported.
Students returned to camp on Tuesday.
