The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado struck a beachfront neighborhood in New York City.

Videos taken by bystanders show the funnel cloud hurling sand and debris in the air as it moves through the Breezy Point section of the Rockaway peninsula in Queens on Saturday. A New York Fire Department spokesman said there were power lines down and possibly other damage.

There are no reports of injuries.
