NEW YORK - Two tornadoes struck New York City Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service says a second, stronger twister touched down in Brooklyn moments after the first hit a beachside area in Queens.
The second tornado hit about 11:05, in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, around 10 minutes after the first struck Breezy Point on the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens.
The weather service says winds were up to 110 miles per hour, and several homes and trees were damaged. No injuries were reported.
Severe weather was forecast into Saturday evening.
