There's a Tornado in the Bronx.....

Yesterday a tornado hit the Bronx, being filmed at Co-Op City (about 5 miles from where I lived when I grew up in the Bronx.)  The tornado left about a one mile path of destruction and injured several.

For all of the urban renewal the Bronx needs, Co-Op City isn't one of those places.  Darn.

The Bronx tornado was caught on camera by a resident of Co-Op City filming from his or her apartment.  Keep in mind that Co-Op City's population is greater than that of Binghamton - and the Bronx has only had two tornados since weather records have been kept.

Even more amusing to me was the coverage given the tornado by KAKE, the ABC affiliate in tornado-prone Wichita, KS.

I hope Co-Op City enjoys its 15 minutes of fame.
