According to Townsquare Media Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, Thursday evening's tornado sighting, which touched down in Mullica Hill, Gloucester County, has been confirmed as an actual tornado.

The twister touched down in the Gloucester County community around 8:15 p.m., according to the NWS, which made the determination based upon a clear video showing small debris being lifted into the air. It’s strength and path will be determined by a survey on Friday.

"The atmosphere wasn't really conducive to severe weather or tornadoes last night, but this kind of quick spin-up can happen without much notice. It's a good lesson to always be vigilant when thunderstorms are in the forecast,"  Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said.
