Tornado confirmed in NYC: So, tornadoes aren’t just a midwestern thing. With confirmed reports of a storm touching down in a beachfront area of Queens (above) and a tornado watch for all five boroughs lasting until 9 p.m., looks like New Yorkers are getting to experience certain things for the first time. Fortunately, nobody was injured in this one, though it did cause some damage and power outages. Other natural disasters they’ve had to deal with lately? An earthquake (which was really more of a DC thing) and a tropical storm. (image by Joey Mure, via AP)
EDIT: Worth pointing out that tornadoes aren’t completely unheard of in NYC (just somewhat rare), as a 2010 storm took out hundreds of trees in Brooklyn. (ht ohheybill)
