A dangerous storm swept across New York City on Nov. 13.

Quarter-sized hail, winds and a possible tornado were reported across the Big Apple’s five boroughs.

A fast-moving storm cell brought high winds and knocked down trees in Lynbrook, Long Island. Heavy rain, hail, and powerful winds reached as far as New Jersey, prompting multiple tornado warnings.

Roughly 11,000 PSEG utilities customers were reportedly blacked out on Long Island. Flights were also disrupted at John F. Kennedy International Airport. However, officials claimed the storm only caused minor delays and flight diversions to other destinations.

There were no confirmed reports of any tornado according to Accuweather. Meteorologist Isaac Longley confirmed just “two areas of rotation” on his radar in central Long Island.

Gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are common this time of year as more cold fronts make their way across the East Coast, according to the National Weather Service.

Hail was reported from Staten Island’s Tottenville to the Bronx’s Woodlawn, as well as across the Hudson Valley and New Jersey.

In the coming days temperatures are predicted to plunge into the 30s overnight, with strong winds continuing.
