Wild Weather Rips Through Tri-State Area

Trees were uprooted all over Westchester, power lines are down and even some vehicles were overturned. There is even speculation that the violent system which blew through the area produced a tornado in Hawthorne. The National Weather Service will release their findings tomorrow and explain what caused so much damage in Central Westchester.

The storm came during the evening commute and caused traffic problems all over, some streets in New Jersey were impassable due to serious flooding.

Portions of the Saw Mill River Parkway and Harlem line of the Metro-North had to be closed due to downed trees.

More on the story from WCBS and New York Newsday
