Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno is asking for a moment of silence at 4:38 p.m. today to mark the six-year anniversary of the deadly tornado that hit western Massachusetts.
Ceremonies are also set for West Springfield where a 40 year old woman died shielding her teen daughter in their home that was struck.
An EF-3 twister resulted in three deaths and widespread destruction in 2011.
The specific time is a reference to when the tornado hit Springfield.
