Tuesday Storm Wreaks Havoc in Brooklyn
Wind from a harsh storm on Tuesday, May 15, toppled steel beams from the roof of 926 Bedford Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, crashing down on two cars.
A tree limb fell on a bus and another on an SUV, Fox 5 reported.
There were no deaths reported in the city as a result of the storm, but one 11-year-old girl was killed in Newburgh, Orange County when a tree fell on a vehicle that her family was unloading, the Times Herald-Record reports.
The storm left some in upstate New York without power, and Metro-North service upstate was canceled or delayed after trees fell on the tracks.
“As a result of downed trees across the northern suburbs affecting all rail lines, Metro-North Railroad has suspended service on the Harlem Line, Hudson Line and New Haven Line until further notice,” the MTA said in a statement.
It also closed Grand Central Terminal to prevent crowding, and people were asked not to enter the terminal until train service was restored.
