  3. Another great video of the wall cloud from Depot Hill Rd. Amenia, NY. Lots of detailed cloud motion.
  4. Drone video of damage at Paley's Farm Market on the Sharon/Amenia border. I feel so bad for them. I used to go there for garden supplies ever since I was a kid.
  5. Yep. I thought it was legit until I read the comments under the video. This one from Tolland, MA seems plausible:
  6. Tornado video in Blandford, MA! Edit: might not have been taken today, but re-uploaded by someone claiming that it was.
  7. Damage to greenhouses at Paley's Farm Market in Amenia, NY, right on the border of Sharon, CT: Beautiful photograph of wall cloud near Amenia, taken by the same photographer: Drone video, too:
  8. Yes... the radial velocity scan was pretty impressive too not long ago.
  9. Tree damage in Falls Village, CT just south of my old high school (Housatonic Valley Regional High School)
  10. Tornado warning for Franklin/Essex counties in upstate NY.
  11. Here's another video shot near White Hollow Rd. and Lime Rock Park (near the border of Sharon and Falls Village, CT). It's shot through a window screen, unfortunately.
  12. This one convinces me. Sharon, CT (my hometown).
  13. I don't know him personally... I will say that he did a good job of targeting a promising cell to chase and dealing with challenging terrain/roads to get a decent view. But I chuckled when he screamed "monster wedge on the ground!!!! Debris in the air!!!" at what was, at best, a wall cloud.
  14. I found a live feed of a guy who claims to have seen a tornado near Amenia, NY... he also sounds young and overly excitable, so take it with a grain of salt. He does have a decent view of the storm, though.
