Tornadoes Slam Brooklyn, Staten Island

Thats why the trains weren’t working and I got to work at home yesterday.  *High Five* Tornado!

During a 10-minute stretch around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday the twister skipped along a nine-mile path before zipping through the Verrazano Narrows and into Bay Ridge. The storm marked Brooklyn’s first tornado since such weather events were recorded. Officials measured it to be an EF2 twister, characterized by winds of anywhere from 111 to 135 miles per hour.
