The National Weather Service has confirmed a fourth tornado ripped through Long Island over the weekend.
The weather agency confirmed the EF-0 tornado hit Remsenburg to Westhampton as well as another in Woodmere that traveled to Levittown and in East Islip. A stronger EF-1 tornado tore through Shirley and Manorville.
While there's extensive damage, officials say there were no injuries.
News 12 Long Island's Caroline Flynn was on Dayton Avenue in Manorville where residents were cleaning up the aftermath.
Homeowner Amanda Olsen explained to News 12 that she was folding laundry when she started getting alerts on her phone. Olsen brought her kids to the basement and that's where she stayed until she learned it was over.
Olsen says when she went upstairs, she saw a tree went through the roof and into her master bedroom.
