Casualties of the Storm

First off we heard there was no F train service at Church Ave b/w 7 and 8 am this morning. We were told local car services had a wait of at least 45 minutes and buses were packed. (We bicycled after watching NY1).

Besides the morning commute trees are down all over the neighborhood. We saw a huge tree was down on Albemarle Road b/w the OP service extension and E5th St. The tree looks as if it was pulled up from the roots and the surrounding sidewalk came up with it. The fallen tree extends across Albemarle from sidewalk to sidewalk making entrance to OP impossible. There were also 2 cars pretty much totalled from the fall. The pictures above are from a reader, Jeff, and seem to be near 135 Ocean Pkwy. A Kensington resident is even featured on Gothamist this morning talking about the tornado.

Any other horror stories on the morning commute or local damage?
