Man dead, woman injured by falling trees in NYC amid Tropical Storm Isaias

Tropical Storm Isaias claimed at least one New Yorker Tuesday and critically injured another, authorities said.

A man was killed in Queens when a tree wrenched loose by the storm’s powerful winds smashed into his car Tuesday afternoon and a woman was critically injured by a flying branch in Brooklyn, authorities said.

The 60-year-old man was hit by the tree on 84th Drive near Smedley Avenue in Briarwood at about 1 p.m., according to fire officials and police.

The man was the first and only death in the city as winds from the tropical storm battered the region.

Mayor de Blasio urged New Yorkers to stay in doors after his death in a radio interview Tuesday.

“It’s so sad we lost someone in queens now from a falling tree branch and I just want to let all New Yorkers know we got to take this storm seriously it is a dangerous level of high winds, should be that way until about 5 p.m.,” de Blasio said.

“So we got a few more hours but really want everyone to stay indoors and stay safe for these next few hours,” he added.

A woman in Brooklyn was also critically injured by a falling branch that hit her while she was walking on Dumont Avenue in Brownsville, police sources said.

“We’ve got another person in critical condition in Brooklyn, so this has been a very damaging storm obviously,” de Blasio added in another radio interview Tuesday afternoon.

The storm moved slightly west as it passed through the New York region, threatening the Hudson Valley and areas north of that with the worst of the rain fall and sustained winds, Gov. Cuomo said in a statement.

Winds from the storm knocked out power for more than a million New Jersey residents and tens of thousands of New Yorkers, according to ConEd and NJ.com.

As the storm moved north from New Jersey, at least two tornados reportedly touched down and tractor trailers were blown off the road in Delaware.
