Here is a preliminary comparison of the windstorms of this past Thursday and the derecho of June 29. Clearly, the June event had higher wind speeds and covered more ground. Both had (preliminarily) two tornadoes reported.
The Elmira, NY tornado yesterday has been confirmed. It is New York's first tornado of 2012.
