Episode Narrative A passing pre-frontal trough and cold front, coupled with a mid level disturbance, produced severe thunderstorms across Southeast New York. The largest impact was across the Lower Hudson Valley, where there was at least one supercell, which produced a tornado in Orange County, and caused a microburst in Westchester County.
Event Narrative Based on a storm survey performed by the National Weather Service, radar signatures, and eyewitness reports, the National Weather Service confirmed an EF-1 tornado that ran from Goshen to Blooming Grove NY, on Friday July 29th. The tornado touched down near 109 Coleman Road and lifted near 600 Craigsville Road in Goshen, then skipped along near Craigsville Road, before finally lifting near 379 Prospect Road in Blooming Grove. All along this path, trees converged into a well-defined narrow path. The most significant property damage occurred on Hasbrouck Road in Goshen, where 2 houses directly across the street from one another - 101 and 110 Hasbrouck - were impacted. At 101 Hasbrouck Road, roof shingles were torn off, skylight windows were blown in with glass shattering, and debris was embedded all along the sides of the house including a small branch that went right through a gutter. At 110 Hasbrouck Road, trees were draped all over the house with minor structural damage.
