Event Narrative A weak and short-lived F1 tornado touched down around 945 pm EDT in Glen Cove. The tornado formed in a thunderstorm that formed on an outflow boundary produced by a line of thunderstorms over Long Island Sound. The tornado moved from northwest to southeast and was estimated to be on the ground for only a minute or two. However, it caused considerable damage to many of the large trees in the area. Many large trees in the neighborhood to the south of the Welwyn Preserve came down and did considerable damage to homes and property. Damage was reported as far southeast as North Shore University Hospital. There were no known injuries.
