Con Edison says more than 1,500 customers were left without power across Brooklyn after Isaias knocked down trees and power lines.
The company says it could take a few days for power to be restored to all residents.
Nadine Telesford, who is pregnant, says a tree came down on her and her neighbor's home around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. She says she and her sister were home when they heard a cracking sound. Telesford says she had to go to the hospital because she hit her leg. Fortunately, she says she will recover just fine.
Another tree crashed into a home on East Fifth Street in Midwood. The tree was completely uprooted when it smashed into a window.
As cleanup continues across the borough, News 12s Katie Vasquez was in Canarsie Park with the latest conditions.
