Severe thunderstorms sweep NYC

A tornado warning is one of the last thing about which a New Yorker may hear on a Friday night, but the National Weather Service issued one for the five boroughs as severe thunderstorms passed over the city.

The storm did not spawn any tornadoes, but the sky did suddenly turn black -- and even green -- ahead of a vivid lightning show, gusty winds and torrential rain. The storm arrived here in Brooklyn shortly before 9 p.m., but it only lasted about 20 minutes. Here are three videos of the storm as it approached.

Ironically, here where I live, it wasn't so bad. What a light show, some thunder, a heavy rain, but nothing torrential.
