Tornado Warning
 
In Brooklyn+Queens?

I thought the end of the world wasn't coming until 2012? :sarcasm:

Got a text from a friend riding the LIRR about half an hour or so ago, apparently they shut down service because of a fallen tree by the Woodside stop. Word is that there was a touch down there? Could be mistaken.

There was definitely some sort of tornado here in Gramercy.

The sky turned a greenish color, and there were huge pellets of hail. When it hit my window, it sounded like glass breaking. The rain came down in sheets and there was almost zero visibility.

Haven't experienced extreme weather like this in awhile. Hope everyone in the metro area is OK.

Tornado warning for almost all of Queens. Fresh Meadows I can confirm a touchdown, no electricity in Bayside, Douglaston the same. Horrible winds....sounded like a train coming through. Chimney damage. This is one for the books for our area. HOPE EVERYONE IS SAFE.

My back windows shattered. Trees all over the place in the street. Block is impassable. Debris from other blocks came thru as well.

This is a VERY RARE AND HISTORIC EVENT for the Queens area.

Got some lights out by me in Commack. Got really dark for a while with some good lightning strikes, but didn't see any torando's touchdown.

BlueshirtBlitz 09-16-2010 06:21 PM

Wow, we got some intense lightning, thunder and rain here but i'm pretty sure it wasn't as bad here as it was in Queens.

Hope everyone's alright.

I'll post up some pictures from the Brooklyn / Queens area soon. Greenpoint [Brooklyn] didn't get hit too hard. However, where my family lives in Ridgewood and Middle Village, at least 20 trees down. Tornados did roll through, chairs in mid air, etc. Crazy stuff...

The Lunatic Fridge 09-16-2010 06:31 PM

broken trees and damaged cars all over the place in forest hills and jackson heights. :(

LamoTheKid 09-16-2010 06:50 PM

We got hail in South Williamsburg.

Radek27 09-16-2010 06:56 PM

I lived in NJ my whole life and I never once seen a tornado and I doubt I ever will.

Wow. The last video on that site is insane! I was out in Morris County NJ so I missed out on this luckily. All is well in Weehawken.

Awesome video's!

nyscene 09-16-2010 09:19 PM

Sorry to invade your board but:
I was in Queens on the LIE when the storm stuck (b/t exits 23 and 24). Storm was coming from behind me, when it caught up immediately got real dark, started to downpour something fierce, visibility at zero, and some nice size pieces of hail. Traffic stopped. When it let up a few minutes later, about 500' ahead of me was a line of damage going right across the LIE.
If it wasn't a tornado, I have no clue what the hell it was. I just wish I wasn't driving so I could've taken pictures.

Hobgoblin Steve 09-16-2010 09:27 PM

Can someone give me a damage report for Long Island City? I cant get in touch with my LIC friends, and so yeah, any update is appreciated

It gets black and blue-ish but not a deep, deep gray and so gigantic like that. That's just ridiculous. Looks like giant F5 tornado creeping on land. Wow.

Hit long island pretty hard. I was walking back from class when the rain and wind picked up. I was drenched like you wouldn't believe. Couldn't see 2 feet in front of me most of the way. Was pretty terrifying considering all the tree's I was walking under :cry:

I wish something like this would go over my condo. :amazed:

I live on the water so I'd just get weak ass water spouts probably. But this was just sick. Like what you said, the ending is nuts.
