Isaias tears through the Bronx and Brooklyn, downing trees and causing power outages
Tropical storm Isaias tore through the Bronx, Brooklyn and tri-state area Tuesday afternoon, downing trees and causing power outages as winds pummeled the area.
A tornado watch was in effect for all of New York City through 4 p.m.
Isaias was downgraded back to a tropical storm after making landfall as a hurricane over the Carolinas. As of 5 a.m., it was making its way toward Virginia. Isaias was first a hurricane, then a tropical storm, then a hurricane and now back to a tropical storm.
Residents are now picking up the pieces and assessing the damage as the storm moves out of the area.
News 12's Phil Taitt is in studio sharing footage posted on social media of Isaias' impact across the five boroughs.
