I remember a few years back, this happened in Nashville. The social dogma around here stated that a tornado couldn't possibly make it over our foothills and hit downtown...
Yeah, we asked for it.


April 16, 1998 - Nashville became the first major city in nearly 20 years to have an F2 or larger tornado make a direct hit in the downtown area.

It's still crazy to hear about a tornado in Brooklyn. I'm sure that was a quite an experience for those folks. The weather has seemed a bit odd lately. Maybe I'm just imagining things.

New York ranks around 35th (if I remember correctly) as far as tornado frequency. That being said, I can not recall a single case where it was remotely close to the city. Very interesting to say the least.

Sometimes cities get nailed.

Here in Pittsburgh a few yrs back we got hit in the top part of the city near the river with an F1/2.... Cant remember but it was intense.


But it is surprising to hear it happen in NYC.
