Video: Hurricane Irene Bears Down on Bushwick

The brunt of Hurricane Irene continues to bear down on Bushwick.

The lights have flickered a couple of times here on Jefferson Street, but we thankfully still have electricity. A tree in our backyard continues to lean. The wind has also shredded a canopy that covered an outdoor patio in the building next to mine.

I shot this video from my bedroom window around 6:20 a.m.

Watching Irene from Sydney, Australia. Sounds like rain will be the worst problem, storm surge etc., maybe the wind won't be so bad. Good video.

Starting to get the worst effects now. Tidal flooding around the city remains serious concern as we approach high tide, but that's not a concern here in Bushwick.
