NYC cleans up from 2 twisters after Eastern storms
NEW YORK — Damaging storms that spawned tornadoes in New York City, darkened tens of thousands of homes in the Washington, D.C., area, and flooded New England streets turned a normal day of rest into a day of cleaning up for many East Coast residents on Sunday.
No serious injuries were reported when a twister hit a beachfront neighborhood Saturday on the edge of New York City and a second, stronger tornado followed moments later about 10 miles away. Residents got advance notice but still the storm took people by surprise.
"I was showing videos of tornadoes to my 4-year-old on my phone, and two minutes later, it hit," said Breezy Point neighborhood resident Peter Maloney. "Just like they always say, it sounded like a train."
