did labor day 1998 even happen

I really wish there was some more pictures or videos from this event. There’s just one mediocre quality video of a Brooklyn couple yelling at each other in their car as the storm rages on.

Even worse I was almost in Lynbrook heading home from the city when the tornado hit and I was stuck inside a train :(. I couldn't really see what was going on from the train except that the sky was black and there was a lot of lightning. I didn't see the damage until I got off the train and the storm had passed. No thunderstorm like it has come even close to the severity in Lynbrook since then.

Heads up NYC metro. We may have some storms to deal tonight.

   Areas affected...eastern PA...northern NJ...and southern NY

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 032258Z - 040030Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...An organized cluster of thunderstorms across eastern PA is
   likely to pose at least a marginal threat for strong winds this
   evening. Limited buoyancy in the wake of previous convection will
   likely support only limited coverage of storms, and a watch is not
   anticipated.

   DISCUSSION...A cluster of thunderstorms over eastern PA has
   increased in convective intensity over the last hour. These storms
   are ongoing ahead of a shortwave trough over Quebec and the eastern
   US. Warm surface temperatures in the upper 70s and and low 80s with
   dewpoints in the mid 60s F ahead of these storms are supporting
   MLCAPE of 500-1000 J/kg. A 50-60 kt mid-level jet ahead of the
   shortwave trough is supportive of favorable deep-layer shear
   profiles with 40-50 kt of effective shear. The combination of
   instability and shear should support continued organization of the
   ongoing storm cluster for a few more hours across portions of New
   York and New Jersey. Damaging winds will be the primary threat given
   the linear nature of the ongoing storms and extended but straight
   line hodographs. Limited spatial coverage and the lack of greater
   instability due to previous convection will likely limit the threat.
   No watch is planned at this time.
