tornado

They say that NYC doesn't get tornados. Apparently, it does.

It was terrifying! But we're good. :)

Thursday evening a tornado touched down in the Flushing/Bayside section of Queens, NYC.
This was my street the next morning.

Miraculously, only one person died - when a tree fell on her car.

This was taken two days after - clean-up was well underway.

Many streets are still closed.

Lots of crushed cars.

Most of the really big ones took the sidewalks with them.

Nine trees were brought down on this one block. I believe it was the worst street.

This was around the corner from my house.

OMG! It was on the news over here - I didn't realise it was so close to you. I didn't know NY got tornadoes either - the world's weather certainly has gone mad!
Fantastic reporting!
