Authorities issued a tornado warning on Tuesday afternoon for Manhattan and the Bronx.
“Heavy rainfall may hide this tornado. Do not wait to see or hear the tornado. TAKE COVER NOW!” the National Weather Service warned after 2 p.m.
A city bulletin was similarly adamant: “IMMEDIATELY go indoors and/or to the lowest flood of your building for shelter. Stay away from windows.”
The tornado warning was canceled around 3, but a severe thunderstorm watch is also in effect until 5 p.m. So stay inside (understanding you’re probably already inside).
