FLUSHING, Queens (WABC) — Powerful winds ripped a tree out of the ground, crushing several parked cars in Queens and buckling the sidewalk.
It happened just before 5 p.m. Friday in Flushing at 165th and 43rd Avenue.
“Its tires popped from the weight of this massive tree that came crashing down on it,” said Micaela Marin.
The tree also ripped down power lines and knocked out a utility pole.
“All I heard was the shake – the floor shake and vibrate. It was pretty terrifying, because you just hear screaming,” said Gulton Rivera.
The tree also ripped down power lines and knocked out a utility pole. Con Edison says dozens of customers in the area are still in the dark.
Crews are working to replace the pole and raise the fallen wires. They are hoping to have power restored overnight.
No one was injured.
