A Tornado Warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Orange, Rockland, and Westchester counties from 3:48 a.m until 4:15 a.m.

At 3:47 a.m. a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Monsey, moving northeast at 35 mph, officials say. The National Weather Service says the radar indicated it was a tornado.

At 4:44 a.m. a Tornado Warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Putnam, Westchester and Rockland counties until 5:15 p.m., a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Nyack at 4:43 a.m., moving northeast at 30 mph.

Again officials stated the radar incited the storm had tornado-like "rotation."

At 5:22 a.m., a Tornado Watch was issued for Ulster, Dutchess, Columbia and Green counties until 5:45 a.m. At 5:21 a.m., a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Saugerties moving northeast at 25 mph.

The National Weather Service believed the storm was a tornado because of the rotation on the radar.

A man from South Saugerties stated on social media 90 seconds after receiving a Tornado Watch alert "it sounded like someone started a jet engine outside."

As of this writing, it's too early to confirm if tornados touched down in the Hudson Valley. Officials will have to survey the damage before confirming. We will update if more information is known.
