NEW YORK - The US National Weather Service reported a tornado may have touched down in the New York City borough of Queens on Saturday morning, pulling down power lines, throwing around cars and damaging property.

The weather service said in a preliminary report that a tornado may have hit Breezy Point, a neighborhood on the Rockaway Peninsula of Queens.



Tornadoes are extremely rare in the largest and most densely populated US city.

A National Weather Service advisory warned of more storms and possible tornadoes through the evening in other parts of the northeastern United States including sections of New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
