Looks like the SPC has added a confirmed tornado report in central NJ...still no official report of a tornado in the NYC area though.

It's a widespread area that needs to be surveyed. We'll get the findings later on, maybe even next few days.

Now ya know how I felt 3 Summers ago !

Sounds/looks very similar to the tornado that hit us in Bay Ridge a few Summers ago, 3 inches of rain in an hour, 135 MPH winds. Lucky it touched down pre-morning commute or there would've been some fatalities for that one too. Dozens of trees and rooftops destroyed. It was the 6th tornado to touch down in NYC, on record. If this is classified a Tornado it will be #7.

Haven't experienced extreme weather like this in awhile. Hope everyone in the metro area is OK.
Hail doesn't mean it's a tornado.

Hail is a good indicator, often.

haha I never said it was a tornado. It LOOKS like a tornado - an F5.

No. I am a weather hobbyist. I've been fascinated with meteorology all my life as a child til now. Just wait til winter comes around; I cannot wait. I however am going for a insurance license and a political science degree. Do not have a meteorology degree. However, I'm on the verge of getting a certificate for forecasting from Penn State.

That's awesome, man.

The weather's cool, really. Always wanted to see a tornado. There was two water spouts in the bay last summer and I live on a canal that's a couple hudred feet long that leads out to the part of the bay where they were. I was so pissed because I wasn't home. And I was always hoping for a small hurricane to come through once. I know it sounds pretty stupid, but it's pretty sick to experience.

You'd love Florida afternoons in the summer. It's ridiculous. I'm sure you can figure that out knowing of the hockey team in Tampa called the "Lightning". haha

haha for sure. yea man, as silly as it sounds im 100% with you. i want to experience all of it. however, there are soo many people like us who are now wishing to never want to experience something like this......unlike before when they were craving for it. it's awesome...how the atmopshere can act in any minute.

this setup wasn't even forecasted...it came out of no where around peak rush hour hours and im shocked at how only 1 fatality occured. amazing stuff all around.

That's what's unbelievable, especially a tornado went through Brooklyn, if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah, I was looking at those and I was like "There's no way in a hell a bad storm just with wind and rain can do that". The worst I've ever seen from a storm is palm tree branches on a street lol
