Extreme Weather

LONG ISLAND, NY (WTNH) — People on parts of Long Island are cleaning up Tuesday from a tornado that touched down on Labor Day.

The twister, with 85mph winds, touched down in Manorville Monday afternoon.

It was on the ground for nearly 2 miles, ripping down trees and utility poles.

“Everything in my backyard was picked up and going in a circular motion,” said a LI homeowner whose house was in the path of the tornado. “You think it might happen in the mid-west, but not on Long Island.”

No one was hurt.
