Damage assessments are underway in a Concord neighborhood where residents were awakened by an EF-1 tornado early Monday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, the tornado packed winds of up to 100 miles per hour and hit around 3:20 a.m. Concord fire officials say 39 homes were damaged and power was knocked out for about 1,000 customers at one point.

WBUR's Delores Handy reports that, while no one was injured, damage from Monday's twister is extensive.
