A freak storm traveling from Staten Island across New York harbor, carved a 14-mile (22km) path of destruction from Brooklyn to the Bayside area in Queens, spawning a microburst with speeds of about 125mph (200 km/h), and two deadly tornadoes.

The tornadoes, which struck on Thursday, uprooted at least 1,000 trees,  cut power to as many homes, crushing dozens of cars, and killing at least one person whose car was hit by a falling tree.

New York City was hit by tornadoes for the second time this year, but only 9th time since 1950, National Weather Service said.
