Tornado!? (Sep 2010)
There were two tornadoes reported in Brooklyn and Queens, but our block got hit by a macroburst, which was even stronger. I wasn't home when it happened, but my wife was. She said it sounded like continuous thunder, with rain so hard you couldn't even see out the window. Less than five minutes later it was over, and in that time an amazing number of beautiful giant old trees were knocked down, crushing cars and houses. Amazingly, only one person was killed.

We seemed to have the worst-hit block in the neighborhood. All the photos and videos in this set were taken within a block of my house.
