This is not footage taken by a storm chaser in Texas or Oklahoma. This is footage from Breezy Point east of Coney Island in New York City ( I painted a mural out in Breezy Point years ago).
A tornado formed about 11:15 this morning over the Atlantic and moved inland over Coney Island, and then eastward to the Rockaways.
I was far away in the Bronx at the time teaching class.
We don't usually get weather like this. I wonder if the Texas weather followed me here.
Here's a photo of the thing, one of many posted today.
In this city full media whores, everyone is ready with their cameras, though I don't remember Texas with all of its storm chasers and photographers to be that much different.
