Thursday's Twin Tornadoes Hit Perth Amboy to Flushing, Even Plumsted

The New York City area was hit by a nasty storm on Thursday 16 September. The experts have determined that three tornadoes struck the region the other evening. (Before Thursday, the area had only experienced eight recorded tornadoes. The total is now eleven.) There were reports of a funnel cloud at Old Bridge and Perth Amboy had a wind gust of 73 MPH. A friend sent me this photo from Queens, where an EF1 tornado reached 100 MPH and a microburst of 125+ MPH  was verified.
