It's not normally a hazard you'd associate with visiting NYC is it?

DH is currently there on business, so glad i didn't find out about the tornadoes til i already knew he was safe! He said it was like someone was emptying buckets of water from the sky!

Fairly unsusual, I liked the fact that one hit a place called Breezy Point. The YouTube video is worth persisting with, it shows quite a small tornado but you get a feel for the power that even a small tornado exerts.

The storms forced evacuation of the us open tennis part way through the second semi final.
