“It looked like a tornado.” Severe weather hits Chester
Last night's storm did serious damage across the Hudson Valley as wind, rain and even hail resulted in downed trees and power lines.
The storms hit hard on Mari Road in Chester at about 9 p.m.
Those on the scene tell News 12 the dangerous weather reminded them of a tornado.
"Within ten minutes, we had hail the size of golf balls, everything was flying. Trees were being uprooted, and we didn't know what was going on. It looked like a tornado more than anything else... felt like a tornado too," says Chester Councilman Tony Ardisana.
Authorities have not confirmed a tornado in the area. There were no reported injuries.
