MAXIMUM EF SCALE RATING...N/A

ESTIMATED MAXIMUM WIND SPEED...105 mph

ESTIMATED PATH WIDTH...3 miles

PATH LENGTH...8 miles

BEGINNING LAT/LON...41.55/-73.97

...SUMMARY...
A National Weather Service team determined that a macroburst
occurred in southern Dutchess County, NY along the I-84 corridor
roughly between Beacon/Wappingers Falls and East 
Fishkill/Hopewell Junction.

The macroburst toppled/uprooted hundreds of trees. Some trees 
fell on structures. There was limited direct damage from wind to 
structures with a fallen chimney noted as well as some siding 
ripped off a few homes.

The damage is consistent with wind speeds in the 85 to 105 mph 
range.

For reference...

A macroburst is a thunderstorm downdraft affecting an area at 
least 2.5 miles wide with peak winds lasting 5 to 20 minutes. The 
macroburst is a straight-line wind phenomena not associated with 
rotation...used to differentiate from tornadic winds.

Macrobursts can produce as much if not more damage as tornadoes 
due to the size and scope of a macroburst.
