ROSCOE, N.Y. (AP) — A tornado tore through a largely rural area in Sullivan County, New York, damaging several buildings but causing no known injuries Saturday night, officials said.
A National Weather Service storm survey team confirmed that a tornado formed between the hamlets of Roscoe and Callicoon Center, which are about 7 miles apart in Sullivan County. The service did not immediately provide information on the tornado’s strength or how long it stayed on the ground.
The tornado destroyed two barns on a farm and ripped the roof off an auto body shop, according to county officials and local reports.
The tornado formed as a line of thunderstorms moving through the region closed roads and interrupted power to thousands of customers.
Roscoe is about 90 miles northwest of New York City.
