Tornado Warning for The Big Apple!

Last night a round of severe weather took aim on the New York City metro area. At around 8:00 p.m. a big-time supercell thunderstorm developed in northwest New Jersey and marched its way southeastward right towards the Big Apple, prompting a string of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings for the entire city!

As the storms neared, I grabbed my video camera and headed right towards The High Line to watch them roll in – and boy was I glad I did. I caught the storm as it exploded right over the city with intense lightning, strong winds, heavy rain and hail!

A most-definite rare weather event for New York City, check out this progression of videos I filmed!
