Watch: Intense Videos from the Brooklyn 'Tornado"


Those of you in NYC know what an incredible storm passed through here this evening.

Check out this video from a surveillance camera in Brooklyn, which was hit the hardest.


Gothamist and the NYT both have good reports on the storm, with photos. Blabbeando has some shots of tree destruction.

Here's another of the storm, as it approached Brooklyn.

  1. Not a well formed funnel at all. Just a bad storm.

  2. Just another day in Kansas. Our warning sirens would have been going off and weather radios would be instructing us to take shelter in a basement or interior room away from windows. Of course, we all go outside on the porch to look instead. There's a twister coming Aunt EM Aunt EM!

  4. Has Pat Robertson made any profound remarks about this? It can't have been a real tornado: as a midwesterner, I know that those usually attack selectively, taking out mobile home parks. Except, of course, for the occasional small town.

  5. We get it, people from the Midwest, your storms are bigger than this one. But that's not really the point. The point is that NYC does not normally get storms like this, hence the reaction. Sheesh.

    Regardless of who wins the who-has-bigger-storms debate, one thing that can be agreed upon: it was sad to see so many beautiful, majestic trees that have been in Brooklyn since the 19th century get demolished.

    But no one's saying we're not going to get over it.
