A tornado warning has been issued for all five boroughs in NYC today, and New Yorkers are being cautioned to stay indoors whenever possible. The watch comes after firefighters responded to reports this morning about what appeared to be a twister off the shore of Breezy Point, Queens. The funnel-shaped cloud was visible from the neighborhood’s Surf Club, and callers from the neighborhood gave testimonials about flying debris and damage to property. Editor’s note: As of 1:35PM, the National Weather Service [2] has confirmed that the dark cloud that struck Breezy Point was indeed a tornado.
