Man, that's rough. I narrowly escaped something similar last year with an entire tree. I think they should be able to fix it up like new. Given the extent of the tree damage if you look on the bright side it could have been so much worse!

Very freakish storm. My parts in the BX were fine...but queens and brooklyn got demolished. Apparently trucks got flipped over on the van wyck expressway...

there are vids on nypost.com.....

I was driving home from CT when the storm hit....it was much weaker obvi...but they said it was the same cell that ripped through queens and brooklyn. I have never seen clouds like that ever....they were literally touching the ground.

A few months ago we had a tornado in riverdale of the Bronx....looks like mother nature has us NYC'ers targeted...

That storm was crazy man. Glad to see you're ok.

I was driving on 95 North close to Mamaroneck when it hit, the rain was so bad that I started aquaplaning at 45-50 mph. I had to get all the way into the far right lane and slow down to 30ish. Also saw lightning hit one of the floodlights along the side of the highway. What the heck is going on in NYC?

That sucks big balls. Storm really ripped up everything around my way. Some cars got wasted. Could that be taken out by dentless repair?
