    Hard to believe, but a tornado touched down about 3 blocks north of my backyard...very rare for Staten Island/Brooklyn. My 1 chicken and the new coop faired very well with no damage.

    No damage at all. Just alot of water around. But just 3 blocks away, there were downed trees, downed utility poles and no power. We were lucky!

    You are so lucky-both to have missed the tornado & to have chickens in the city! Glad everything's okay.
