    Brooklyn Tornado


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sheilasnyc was walking her dog in her neighborhood of Astoria, Queens in New York, when she noticed dark clouds rapidly moving in and the wind starting to pick up. 'My dog looked up at me and froze and I told him, "We are not Dorothy and Toto, let's go." I knew a tornado was coming, I felt it,' she said. She captured a video of a funnel cloud forming from her apartment building on September 8. She says the storm lasted all day, with intense winds and severe thunderstorms. Two tornados hit New York on Saturday; read more here and see Sheila's photos here.
