BROOKLYN - Community members and local officials are researching ways to provide early warnings for tornadoes that tear through the borough.

The National Weather Service and the Office of Emergency Management confirmed that an EF0 tornado touched town in Brooklyn Thursday evening.

Residents say they need a disaster hotline and warning siren system that would provide residents with enough time to prepare for such tornadoes again.

On Thursday, the storm-ravaged area was littered with uprooted trees and downed power lines. Some areas also saw serious structural damage to buildings.
