NWS: It wasn't a twister, Pleasantville
It wasn't a twister, Pleasantville, according to the National Weather Service.
Despite what neighbors believe, the weather service has confirmed that a tornado did not touch down in the neighborhood. According to the weather service, the storm that blew through the area Sunday was a straight line wind storm, which means the wind did not rotate.
Residents recall heavy rain, high winds and hail during the storm that caused damage in Pleasantville, Chappaqua and Maphopac. The Saw Mill River Parkway had to be closed Sunday due to downed trees and many were left without power after the storms.
The National Weather Service was in Pleasantville to investigate the damage Monday before making its determination.
