This happened Friday afternoon. The wind was blowing dangerously fast all day. Weather reports for Manhattan said “watch out for flying construction debris.” I expected to see a few limbs broken off the trees when I took my dog for a walk in the park. I did not expect to see a tree ripped in half at the trunk. I have never seen anything like this before. I tried to get a better angle but the sun is right behind the tree so this was the only way to avoid the glare.
