UPDATE: Photo of tornado near the Statue of Liberty is fake. We were all duped, especially TIME -- haha Twitter, good one. We hate it when people pull this shit.'
The aftermath: Thousands are left without power, and at least one person died from causes relating to the storm.
via the New York Times At least one woman was killed when a tree fell on a vehicle about 6:50 p.m. on Grand Central Parkway in the vicinity of Jewell Avenue in Queens. Police said the woman had pulled her car to the side of the parkway, possibly to avoid the storm -- though that was still being investigated.
