    Tornado Upstate New York


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While heading north on the highway between Binghamton and Syracuse, pecs1981 saw a tornado materialize in the upstate New York area on July 13. The German-Hungarian who now lives in Fort Drum says she had never seen a tornado before this one. "It was scary. At first, I thought it was moving slowly, but it was building up fast. I thought when I saw it that it was the elevator of the devil," she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    I am a Hungarian/German living in Fort Drum upstate New York. I live since 10 month in the USA, my husband is deployed since 6 month....on Sunday 13 July 2014 I saw my first tornado on my way back from Baltimore. It was on the 81 north between Binghamton and Syracuse. I was so scared, I thought this is it, if this tornado jumps on the motorway, I will be flying around in my little ford focus. I sounds very scared in this video and I speak German (-: A very interesting experience, I might do not want to have it again....
