The twisters struck the edges of Brooklyn and Queens, knocking out power for more than 1,000 residents. Luckily, there were no serious injuries. In addition, two possible tornadoes were reported in the Washington, D.C., area, and there was major flooding in some New England towns. In northern New Jersey, thousands were left without electricity.
