The National Weather Service says the tornado touched down about three miles from Amsterdam, N.Y., on Sunday evening. Amateur video posted on YouTube shows a dark funnel cloud crossing the New York Thruway, where it knocked down trees.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says there have been no reports of serious injuries.

The weather service says it has reports of damaged homes in the Cranesville section of Amsterdam. Trees and power lines were knocked down. The service says it concluded it was a tornado based on eyewitness video.

Montgomery County, where Amsterdam is located, is among the counties eligible for federal disaster assistance after Irene.

I was there too, travelling back from Canada to NY. It was pouring so hard you couldn't see even an inch. The lightening was so strong and so close and there were such strong winds. It was pretty scary.

"or maybe gay marriage? (a.k.a. male with male marriage)"

We may be charedim, #2, and we might even be considered by some to be unworldly, but we *do* know what "gay marriage" involves, thank you very much!
