Default Yea, doesnt happen often

I was on the phone with my buddy Bill, and we were talking about the weather. I stated to him, it was raining and not lookinggood. We get off the phone and boom the weather gets bad. I get a call from my brother stating it is horrible in town, and trees are falling and buildings are falling down ect. I kinda laugh and turn on the news, and it states we are under tornado watch. I was like and then, headline hits.... a tornado hit ground in plattsburgh jumped the lake and hit in vermont also. We went to check out everything. It is horrible. The whole plattsburgh and surrounding area is horrible. Hugh trees on houses, a few cars on their sides ect. I have never seen anything like this up here before.

There is a breif story as the storm i guess was first starting. The main part hit right where our local news station is so i dunno if they are going to have updates or what. There was at of helicopers and what not down there so something should be posted soon.

Well from what i seen, (and i couldnt get to the center of the damage obviously) it was absolutly horrible. I saw houses missing roofs, cars on their sides, huge oak tress laying down, campers literally blown away. As for injuries a tree fall on a man at a local campsite, we were told that by police when we were re routed, but he was alive.

In my 30+ years here in NY, I can't recall a tornado EVER.
Of course they said earthquakes were impossible here too...

thats liek what happened back in 2000 or 2001 here in walworth area.. We had a Big storm. Power was out. trees down everywhere. Trucks flipped over... there was a tornado that cut a path for about 3 or 4 miles...

you can still see some of the spots that dont look right.

Wow... it REALLY was raining hard. When you said it was raining like mad..I thought "he'* a wussy".... looks like I was a wee bit wrong.

On an odd note..in the middle of the video footage from the TV station.. was that a rock they were watching?
