A string of severe storms hit the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Saturday night, including two tornadoes that touched down in New York City and startled residents who often think of twisters as a Midwestern phenomenon.
The two tornadoes struck the edges of Brooklyn and Queens, sending debris flying and knocking out power but causing no serious injuries. The storms also forced sports games to cancel -- including the U.S. Open tennis tournament, which postponed the women's final to Sunday -- and caused widespread power outages in the tri-state area, Virginia, and other states along the East Coast.
I grew up in Ohio and I've never seen a tornado in real life (fortunately). How scary
