Fox News alert you heard Janice Dean warning before about the wind associated with this storm in particular in the New York City area.
Some areas we'll take it worsened when it comes to rain some we'll take a worse when it comes to wind.
And now we get reports of a crane that is said to be partially collapsed.
In midtown Manhattan we are told that this is 57 street between sixth and seventh avenues.
Again that's midtown Manhattan and that a crane has partially collapse -- a city knew that this storm was coming in -- to the extent it could but things like this can happen.
Even in the best of circumstances we have not yet received any reports of injuries.
On the ground or elsewhere will continue to monitor those wires and our local reporting.
For an update on that we want to get to Janice Dean and Janice you said.
The wind is one of the main dangers here.
-- sure and we're getting wind -- right now in the area of around 54 miles per hour now.
We heard that -- the area was sick here in this region and and obviously that's not the case -- we we look at this partially collapsed crane.
Which could cause some obvious severe injuries but hopefully.
Up people are in their homes in their apartment buildings.
And you know this won't be an issue but this is this is the type of scenario that we might be dealing with when we get wind gusts in excess of 50607080.
Our so now that people are not listening they are not they are not home I am looking out the window right here and I can see plenty of people walking up and down.
47 street on their way to sixth avenue and there goes the police try that that the fire truck but people are.
You know what -- and we try so hard as meteorologists to make sure that people heed the warnings and nobody should be on the street right now nobody.
Especially when you got wind gusts in excess of 5060 miles per hour that's -- a cause debris to fly an act as projectiles so.
Obviously this is a worst case scenario we don't need a crane collapsing in midtown Manhattan.
So people need to be indoors they need to be away from danger because over the next several hours we're gonna have a landfall of a hurricane that's gonna bring the worst of conditions.
New York City so people need to be indoors yeah.
And and the earlier advisory saying that it's important to know that winds affecting the upper floors of high rise buildings will be significantly stronger.
Than those near ground level he's a lot pages looks like six avenue.
Outside of our other camera I'm -- in front of the building agencies and emergency response vehicles.
Which actually I saw from another vantage point here -- we don't know what if anything -- happened but we can see.
We can see them on the street -- maybe they may be going to the site which would be consistent with the -- 67 and sixth we're not much more on this storm Jess our thanks to your -- -- -- --
