The Warning also cautioned people for their safety because the tornado was predicted to be enveloped by strong wind s and rain. They advised the people to be at basement, as it’s the safest place. Getting into a sturdy furniture is another option. They suggested that in absense of basements, they could stay at the lowermost floor of the building they are on, which could be a room. Staying close to windows was discouraged. Getting into a shelter was the first thing people in vehicles should do.

Noelia Colon, Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz’s spokesperson said that the thunderstorm came in at around 5p.m. and said it seems like a tornado. These severe storms causedThe National Weather Service to state tornado warning in certain areas of Brooklyn and Queens too. Then later, the New york Television reported damages and destruction brought about by the strong winds and rain along the state.

There had been major traffic on the state because of the trees which had fallen on the streets. A woman was reported killed because a tree had collapsed and staggered on her car on on the Grand Central Parkway near Jewel Avenue. The storm also brought power failure to thousands of Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey customers and households.
