On Sunday afternoon, the first tornado to touch down in the Bronx in 36 years did some serious damage in Riverdale. Yesterday the National Weather Service confirmed that the storm that brought down trees and power lines was in fact a tornado. Winds gusted around 100 miles per hour, and 7 people were injured. "I was never so scared in my life," Joan Kearney, 80, tells the Daily News. "I've never seen anything like this. I've almost lived on this street my whole life." And other residents tell NY1, "The rain was going around in a circle and all. Blasted through here; never saw so much rain coming down the hill here. It was just like a whole sheet of white water everywhere." (And in Riverdale Park, the rain completely rusted out a Parks Dept. tree trimmer's tin uniform.)
