Last night’s freak storm in New York City, where 100mph winds lead to damage and the unfortunate death one one person, is leading many to speculate whether a tornado was actually responsible. It’s happened before — roughly seven times since the mid-70’s, including this past July 25th’s EF1 system in the Bronx.

And yes, Hollywood has already addressed this — as recently as 2008 with the film NYC: Tornado Terror. As you can probably guess, the movie deals with apocalyptic conditions (somehow “inspired by true events”) over Gotham that lead to a series of massive tornadoes, destruction, and chaos. The only way to stop it? Shooting rockets filled with dry ice into the storm. Perhaps Mayor Bloomberg should have some on standby just in case.
