On Sunday, June 8, 2008, the National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Southwestern Suffolk County in Southeast New York State. At 6 PM, the thunderstorm passed over my house (located in the warned area) with wind gusts around 60 mph, hail slightly smaller than pea-sized, a torrential downpour, lightning, thunder, and even a rainbow. The storm left its mark. Lightning struck through the roof of a home in Lindenhurst, and numerous trees were blown down. Lawn chairs were blown into the canal behind my house. The roof of a bath house at a local beach was completely ripped off by the winds as well. Numerous power outages were seen across Long Island. There was an unconfirmed tornado report in East Meadow. Compared to all the storms I have seen here in Lindenhurst in the past 10 years or so, this would have to be on the list of the top 10 most severe storms.
