Tornadoes may have hit the Hudson Valley.
Tropical Depression Fred ravaged parts of the east coast, the National Weather Service saying as many as 14 possible tornadoes were reported in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina on Tuesday.
Fred’s remains reached the Hudson Valley early Thursday morning and the people of the Hudson Valley woke up to the tornado warnings.
Tornado warnings are only issued when a tornado is reported by radar or spotters.

A tornado warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Orange, Rockland and Westchester counties from 3:48 a.m. to 4:15 a.m.
At 3:47 a.m., a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Monsey, moving northeast at 35 mph, officials said. The National Weather Service says radar indicated it was a tornado.
At 4:44 a.m. a tornado warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Putnam, Westchester and Rockland counties until 5:15 p.m. A severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Nyack in 4:43 a.m., moving northeast at 30 a.m. mph.
Again, officials said radar prompted the storm to have a tornado-like “spin”.
At 5:22 a.m., a tornado watch was issued for Ulster, Dutchess, Columbia and Green counties until 5:45 a.m.
The National Weather Service believed the storm was a tornado due to the radar rotation.
A man from South Saugerties said on social media 90 seconds after receiving a Tornado Watch alert “it looked like someone had started a jet engine outside”.
At the time of this writing, it is too early to confirm whether tornadoes have touched the Hudson Valley. Authorities will need to assess the damage before confirming. We will update if more information is known.
