    Manhattan had some rumbling but nothing terribly severe.
    In areas like Brooklyn, though, it was a bit rough. Several trees fell and there was sight of rotation in the sky although no actual tornados made landfall.

    Apparently 1 known fatality, a driver had their car hit by a tree on the Grand Central.

    Watched the news, the anchors are stupid, a picture with several metal polls, evenly spaced and sheet metal at their top end, knocked over, the anchor says, "Gee, I wonder what that is." IT'S A SCAFFOLD, that was blown over.

    Most of the damage seems to have affected the boroughs other than Manhattan. We were whipped around by the wind but as far as I know except for the one fatality all are well.

    It basically came out of nowhere. The sky got dark 30 minutes later a drizzle started, then wham. The worst only lasted a short time, but it was intense.

    My building took a lightning strike; a small fire and no power for a few hours. I think Brooklyn and Queens got the brunt of the storm. Sorry about your car!^
