On May 2nd, 1983 an F3 tornado and other storms ripped through and ravaged 11 New York counties. People were killed, several were injured, and there was detrimental property damage. On this week 33 years later, we remember that day with this Raw Footage from Matt Lanza who worked at WKTV at the time.

This specific footage is from cameras that captured the aftermath in Northern Oneida County, specifically Boonville. We don't ordinarily get thunderstorms that severe, let alone a tornado, so this event will always remain historic. This is however the Mohawk Valley and who knows what our weather will bring.
