rep for cleaverness


#1246

Damn that looks crazy.


#1247

91 teg…Damn everyone ok???


#1248

Just because there is damage doesn’t mean it was a tornado. Straight line winds can do major damage.


#1249

Trees down all over in my yard in Latham. My street got hammered. We also have no power


#1250

My girlfriend says every house on her street has trees down/damage. She’s in latham as well.


#1251

Dude there are 4ft diameter trees ripped out of the ground and thrown. Im no expert but if that was just wind well god dam. MikeyB as far as i can tell everyone is ok but theres alot of damage.


#1252

Yeah the radar was crazy looking. Huge bow echo with a curling top right in the Schenectady area. Definite recipe for funnel clouds whether one formed or touched down is still up in the air.


#1253

Bow echos are more of an indicator of straight line wind than tornados.

91teg, rotational wind in a tornado isn’t much different than straight line wind in a microburst. We have fairly weak tornados in this area and even those are rare. I may be wrong, but I don’t think it was a tornado. Either way I hope everyone is alright.

There was a picture of a possible tornado right over the GE plant as well. I can’t seem to find that one though, it was on the news.

#1258

Yes the bow echo itself. But when the top curls back like an apostrophe it’s great indication of rotation.
