These storms have some of the strongest winds I've ever witnessed in a thunderstorm



Power is flickering

Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever driven through anything quite like that.  I was heading down 287 S in the Montville area around 4:30-4:45. The sky was bright to my left, pitch black to my right.  Even before the rain started, there was large debris swirling in the air and on the road and I was wondering if I was inside some kind of mini tornado, even though I didn’t see what looked like any funnel clouds...although I couldn’t spend a lot of time looking at the sky, as it was all I could do to drive in that wind.

Rain started coming down in sheets - all the cars and even the big 18-wheelers had their flashers on and were crawling.  Winds and swirling debris were crazy.  LOUD clunks hitting my car from what I assume were big hailstones but I never did see any because I couldn’t look around, it was all I could do to drive.

Holy cr*p!

Forgot to add that the temperature dropped almost 25 degrees from the time I got in my car to the time I got home about half an hour later!

Wow oh wow. Frank ditto the winds top my all time thunderstorm. There is a ton of damage including a tree on a city bus block McLean and central to those in the area medium to large branches down on almost all streets a huge tree uprooted onto a house a few large trees across cars. I was in a large parking lot when I saw the straight line wind coming with garbage dirt and it hit like a ton of bricks had to be 70 plus mph. They conti yes in waves then the rain stated with the worst wind over. I ha e pics and video ill post tonight or when I can.

About a mile from my home, all hell broke loose.  Trees down all over, power lines down, school canceled for tomorrow. 133,000 in my area without power. My wife said she saw some buildings down, collapsed. A ten minute trip to the high school to get my son was an hour each way. Kids were harboring in place in the gym. It happened at 3:35 when the storm came in. Dark skies, wind, driving rain. Intense for about 30 minutes. Some local paper pictures of a funnel cloud touching down. Roads are closed and Towns of Sullivan  and Mamakating declared states of emergency. Sullivan manager says damage with trees down is same as the March 2 storm and that some roads will remain impassable for days.

I am 7 miles from Pine Bush and about five more from Walden. Yes, it is real bad up here. I am sure they do not have power. Route 302 and Old 17 are closed due to fallen trees and power lines. Most likely Pine Bush may take up to 3-4 days to get power back. I missed it all by literally a mile. Almost like it was a derecho. My daughter got off the bus at 3:25 pm and 10 minutes later, BAM!

This is explanation for further down jersey shore and they indeed call it a tsunami! In NY/NJ!!

This kind of tsunami is generated by abrupt changes of atmospheric
pressure in the causative storm system, which is a line of
thunderstorms that moved over the ocean in this case
. The
combination of the air pressure effect on the ocean surface and
the speed at which the pressure disturbance travels can generate
tsunami like waves in certain situations. The National Tsunami
Warning Center is monitoring this event.

Wow, that was fun! But sorry for anyone who was hurt or had damage... wind was insane here, straightline winds taking town a few trees, but mostly large branches. .42" of rain, considering it was raining sideways! Still some areas with roads closed, hopefully they will be clear for the commute tomorrow...

Wicked winds, hand held anemometer registered 60mph winds as storms plowed through, numerous trees down, wappingers, east fishkill, and kent look like war zones in places, hats off to the SPC and NWS for recognizing the severe threat and warning the public ahead of time. As far as the Meteotsunami goes: https://whyy.org/articles/severe-storms-generated-meteotsunami-as-they-moved-off-n-j/
