So, About That Tornado Thing in Park Slope

There is no set of worldly circumstances that would allow you to not know that we just had a fucking tornado pass through the Slope.  When I surface at 9th Street daily, the list of things I don't expect to see generally include a Mets win, a yellow cab, and anything open at 10:15pm.  Usually, I don't think to include "tornado" or Brooklyn Industries without any windows.

 

The gentleman currently sitting to my right, who has spent a good deal of his life in Oklahoma and Kansas, is laughing at me as I type.

Anyway, send us your photos.  Better yet, send 'em to me so I don't give Erica an inbox heart attack.  Twitter says she's still recovering, anyway.

Edit 11:01pm: Photos from FIPS reader Vautrin. Thanks!

Edit 11:52pm: Photos from Californian Caitlyn, who picked a pretty shitty/rad time to visit. She says, "I'm visiting from California--where we really don't have tornadoes--and was stranded at the Tea Lounge during this afternoon's sudden thunderstorm. I took a few photos on the walk back to my friend's place on Eastern Parkway across from the Brooklyn Museum."

Edit 7:44am: Photo of Flatbush from Michelle Citrin.  She says, "Trees flatbushed!"
