Meteorologist Says Tornado Confirmed in Westchester County
Local meteorologists have reported that a tornado has touched down in Westchester County.
According to a tweet from NBC Connecticut Meteorologist, Josh Cingranelli, a tornado debris signature confirmed that there was a tornado on the ground in New Castle, New York late Tuesday afternoon (October 2).
As NBC's chief meteorologist, Ryan Hanrahan, explained in a tweet at 6:26 PM on Tuesday, the tornado debris signature is an instrument that detects debris sent into the air by a tornado into the clouds overhead.
As it stands right now, many roadways have seen fallen trees in local towns like New Canaan and Mount Kisco. Also, Metro-North has suspended sections of the Harlem Line between Chappaqua and Southeast due to downed trees across the tracks, leaving many local commuters stranded.
Currently, there is a severe thunderstorm warning in effect throughout the entire local area and meteorologist, Josh Cingranelli says that it is very possible that this storm could produce more tornadoes.
