Meteorologist David Stark of the National Weather Service says that in the past five years, there's been a slight increase in the number of tornadoes in the region -- to 10. But he says it's too short a time to call it a growing trend.
Stark says the drama of each storm is heightened by people with cellphone cameras and other digital devices that capture scenes of winds up to 110 miles per hour wreaking havoc -- as in Brooklyn and Queens this weekend.
