I live in a high-rise in Downtown Boston and small debris (mostly shredded leaves) began raining down on the city around 6:30PM EDT. The wind was brisk from the WSW. At 300ft elevation, these pungent shredded leaves must have been tornado fallout.
Yes, they were. Interesting you commented on the "aroma." I write in "Warnings" about the unique, and unforgettable, smell of an area struck by a tornado.
