In the Summer of 2006, a very rare tornado touched down in Central Westchester, hitting parts of the Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills, not far from my home. The only damage was to a heavily wooded area. The power of the twister must have been awesome. Seeing the aftermath in person left me speechless. It was as if Godzilla had ravaged the area; places that were previously solidly green were now open sky.  

I recall another one hit the same day in nearby Hawthorne, inflicting similar damage to trees along Route 9A.
