Regarding Henri

We're officially on storm watch, as this random photo from First Avenue and Sixth Street doesn't really show. 

As of 11 a.m., Henri is now a hurricane, and warnings have been issued for parts of Long Island, Connecticut and Rhode Island... In NYC, we're under a tropical storm warning... with strong winds and heavy rains arriving overnight... Gothamist has a nice recap of all this here

Storm damage: reports of trees and limbs down; Ace Bar's curbside structure collapses

The high winds from this evening's thunderstorm KO'd a tree outside 323 E. 10th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B... coming to rest on a car in the process, as these photos from a longtime reader show...
Hard to tell from the pics, but it appears the car may have been spared serious damage... and no injuries. 

Meanwhile on Avenue B at Seventh Street (thanks @theenemieslist1!) ...
From 11th Street and Second Avenue (not 12th as ID'd on the tweet)... And on Fifth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B, the curbside structure outside Ace Bar flipped over... (thank you @tjack411) ... also no injuries reported here...
The FDNY helped stack up the remains of the structure...

Tree down on 9th Street



At least one tree casualty from the storm that rolled through late this afternoon... EVG reader Penny Rand shared these photos from Ninth Street just a little east of Avenue B along the Christodora House...



"I watched it get uprooted and tossed like a little twig," she said...

Storm brings down this tree on 6th Street


[Photo via @jeremyblock]

This tree took a fall — roots and all — early this evening during the storm on the north side of Sixth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue. Thankfully no one was injured, and the car looks to have suffered just minor damage all things considered...

EVG reader Danny shared these photos... showing the NYPD helping clear the tree from the street...









One witness said that the tree's roots were rotted.

Pre-storm storm damage, maybe

Ahead of the severe storms headed our way this afternoon, some readers are already reporting wind damage.

Like here on Avenue A and Seventh Street... via @biggayicecream ...


Meanwhile ... here's what's headed our way...


And we'll be with you all afternoon. Until the power goes out.
