A tornado has swept through Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Traditional news outlets are incorporating content from acts of citizen journalism in blogs and YouTube to aid their coverage. The New York Times refers to Dan Manco’s Tumblr blog and even stations out in the country, like KRTV 3 in Great Falls, Montana, are using YouTube footage from citizen journalists.

The NYT included a story dedicated to citizen journalists covering the storm.
