Weather service: Tornado caused Albany damage

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- The National Weather Service says it has confirmed that it was a tornado that destroyed a home, knocked over tractor-trailers and snapped trees in half in rural eastern New York.

Meteorologists who surveyed the damage Friday in Schenectady County say the funnel cloud appeared to have touched ground Thursday afternoon near Duanesburg, 20 miles west of Albany.

The twister leveled a home, damaged other buildings, knocked down power lines and trees and flipped over at least two tractor-trailers on Interstate 88. No injuries were reported.

The storm system weakened as it moved eastward across the Hudson Valley.

The weather service says the storm hit around 3:40 p.m. Thursday, around the time President Barack Obama was speaking at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, 40 miles east of Duanesburg.
