Yes, There Was A Tornado Warning In NYC Last Night

If you noticed the winds howling and crazy rain and thunder outside your apartment last night, it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill storm.

The National Weather service actually put out a “Tornado Warning” for NYC!

The warning was for the Bronx, New York (Manhattan), Westchester, and Bergen (NJ) until 9 p.m. yesterday evening (Nov. 15).

NYC Notify (our emergency communication system) advised New Yorkers to take shelter on lower floors and stay away from windows.

You can see some pretty crazy videos below (though, note, it was not confirmed to be an actual tornado). Meteorologists reported 60-80 mph winds.

Thankfully the storm has passed, and today is set to be a “normal day” for mid-November, with some brisk wind, sunny skies, and temps in the 40s and 50s.
