Downed Tree Blocks Queens Street as Tropical Storm Isaias Batters New York

More than 2,000 trees were uprooted across New York City as Tropical Storm Isaias battered the tri-state area on August 4, reports citing Mayor Bill de Blasio said. This footage, shared by Evie Hantzopoulos, shows a large tree blocking 33rd Street in Astoria. One man was killed by a falling tree in Queens, local reports said. The National Weather Service warned of a “high risk” for rip currents in Atlantic Ocean beaches but forecast “much quieter” weather otherwise for August 5. Credit: Evie Hantzopoulos via Storyful
