New England severe weather
Severe thunderstorms with high winds of up to 80 miles per hour rolled through the greater New York City area Tuesday evening killing two and creating property damage and power outages.
I was watching live television coverage online when I saw a reporter and homeowner (photo above) featured inside a New Jersey garage that had just been significantly damaged by a very large tree. The news crew was impressively quick on the scene — although how harrowing to use yourself and the homeowner as points of reference by standing under a structure that could completely and instantly collapse at any moment.
