Tornado warnings were issued on Sunday in New York and parts of southern New England as Hurricane Irene continued to barrel up the US eastern seaboard, ABC News reported.

Hurricane Irene will deliver a storm surge of up to 8 feet, rainfall of up to 15 inches and isolated tornadoes as it churns toward New York City over the next several hours, the US National Hurricane Center said on Sunday, Reuters reported.

Irene remains a Category 1, the lowest level of hurricane classification, with maximum sustained winds near 75 miles per hour, according to the report.
