While we were dealing with a microburst in Wichita, intense storms Sunday were wreaking havoc on the East Coast. It has now been determined that a tornado occurred in the Bronx. My AccuWeather colleague, Jesse Ferrell, has details. While this was the first tornado in the Bronx in 36 years, the NYC area had a tornado just four years ago.
In Washington, D.C., 132,000 homes and businesses are still without power and many will still be without for another two days.
Fortunately, the AccuWeather Real Feel heat index in Washington, D.C. is 86°, which is lower than normal for late July.
