Some of the poles and wires are on parked cars. Fortunately, no one was injured.

The intersection will be closed for an extended cleanup.

Con Edison reports that 246 customers have lost power near the scene.

It is not yet known how long it will take to restore power, or what caused the poles to fall down.
