The Tornado Warning for Southwestern Barnstable County has been lifted.

The National Weather Service in Taunton says the Tornado Warning expired at 9:30  a.m. Wednesday.

Officials say the tornadic thunderstorm which prompted the warning moved out of the area and therefore the warning was allowed to expire.

The communities that were placed under the Tornado Warning included Barnstable, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Mashpee and Hyannis.
