As per The National Weather Service, and the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM,) 2 Tornadoes, including a Very Strong Macroburst landed in New York City!!!!!!!!!!!
1st Tornado touched down in Brooklyn first, an EF0
2nd Tornado touched down 1.5 South of Flushing, an EF1, with Max speeds of 100 mph.
A Macroburst, which is an element of the storm creating the tornadoes, and The Most Dangerous in this days events, crashed through Forest Hills , with Wind Gusts of 125 MPH, with an initial gust of wind @125 MPH, 1.5 miles wide, widening to 5 miles, and 8 miles long!!!!. This Macroburst was EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, the Most Dangerous of the days events, due to the Highest Impact, Largest Path of Destruction and the extended duration of this Macroburst. The Downdraft of Air actually Slammed down on Forest Hills & Middle Village, creating sustained Winds of 125mph, 1.5 miles wide, which expanded to 5 miles wide and 8 miles long. A huge path of destruction. I just saw the video of the explanation again, and had to repeat it, as it is an Enormous force of energy when you think about it.
Initially, the Experts called this a Microburst, but later corrected this to a Macroburst. A Macroburst is at 2.5 miles wide, which this was, and had a duration of approx. 15 minutes. We had a very Destructive Macroburst!!
Forest Hills had the Most Severe Damage of all the Boroughs, due to it being hit the Hardest by this Macroburst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
