As an old USAF Weather Weenie, this one is a situation to watch out for.  Conditions are highly favorable in the NY-NJ-CT area for tornadoes, and there has been a waterspout/tornado in Breezy Point.  Also, there has been a confirmed tornado today in Fairfax, VA just outside DC from the same system, and radar shows more in Delaware & Sullivan counties in NY as of 4 PM.  Stay safe.

BTW:  Great video, Truck4, in the Queens section at http://nycfire.net/forums/index.php/topic,18492.msg0.html#new.

Know the difference between a Waterspout and a Tornado?    One's over water, and the other's over land!  (Doh!)

For all the weather geeks, if you haven't already heard of Wunderground, the radar map they have is awesome:
