The National Weather Service (NWS) office in New York said no tornado touched down, but it was indeed a funnel cloud. A funnel cloud is the parent to a tornado, but in order for a tornado to have officially taken place, the funnel needs to be in contact with the ground. The funnel lifted quickly.
This was in association with a strong line of storms that moved through the area on Tuesday afternoon, some of which led to flooding in and near Washington, D.C, about 200 miles southwest of New York City.
