Weather cleared in New York City late-Tuesday night after not just one, but two Tornado Warnings were issued for Staten Island on Tuesday night, bringing quarter-sized hail and lightning.
The National Weather Service originally issued a Severe Weather Warning for New York City around 9 p.m.
Then came the first Tornado Warning.
Multiple lightning strikes lit up the sky throughout the city. It was accompanied by loud thunder and pouring rain. Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens had severe thunderstorm warnings.
Ground delays were in effect for Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Newark Airports late-Tuesday night.
It was unclear if a tornado actually touched down on Staten Island, but people were warned to take the warnings seriously out of precaution.
53 Con Edison customers citywide were without power as of 1:15 a.m. Wednesday.
