I think it was 2 separate tornado's and a micro burst. Some areas in Queens were hit very hard. Juniper Park in the Maspeth area was hit hard, the Queens College area was hit very hard.

I am in the NYC Dept. of Sanitation and we were cleaning up for a week or so. Picking up falled trees and transporting them to designated areas to be chipped for mulch. I heard over 3000 trees fell. NYC will have way too much mulch next year.

Thanks for the update and additional info hellmaster.



I saw that NYC had more tornado warnings again last week when that tropical depression passed up the coast.

Feds declare disaster in NYC after Sept twisters

President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster in New York City following last month's deadly storm that spawned two devastating tornadoes, killing one woman and causing massive damage.

Gov. David Paterson announced Thursday that Obama issued the federal disaster declaration for Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. The declaration clears the way for an influx of federal funds to pay for up to 75 percent of the response, debris removal and repairs to public property.

Federal and state inspectors have estimated the damage and cleanup costs at $27 million.

The Sept. 16 storm barreled across the three boroughs, toppling thousands of trees. A macroburst with winds up to 125 mph added to the destruction.

One tree came down on the parked car where Iline Levakis was sitting, killing her

Some friends of mine were commuting back out to Long Island during this and they were telling me of the devestation that was occuring as far out as Queens. Scary stuff, indeed.
thats a crazy video!
