(WSYR-TV Syracuse)  Tornadoes do occur in New York State.  Since 1952, there have been 411 tornadoes, which comes out to an average of 6.7 per year.
The 4 tornadoes we saw on July 8, 2014 was not a record.  Looking back through the records, I saw at least 2 instances where 6 or more were recorded in a day.

The following sites will break down the numbers.  Both in map form, and in table form, so you can search for the information you're interested in.
