There was no official report of a tornado from the Storm Prediction Center, but on radar it certainly looks like there could have been one.



That feature that looks like a comma head in the white circle is what weather geeks call a "hook echo." They often indicate a tornado. If there was a tornado it would have been near the tip of the white arrow. It passed directly over central Manhattan then moved through Queens.

Unfortunately, someone was killed in Queens...very sad.

Here is the report:

2144 UNK 4 SSE FLUSHING QUEENS NY 4072 7382 *** 1 FATAL *** TREE FELL ON CAR AT EXIT 15 ON GRAND CENTRAL PARKWAY.
