New York City recovers from fierce storm

41669.jpegNew York City struggled to recover Friday from a fierce storm that roared through Thursday night, throwing down trees like sticks, crippling debris-strewn neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, disrupting commuter rail service and killing at least one person.

Long Island Rail Road officials said that crews were working through the night to remove debris from tracks, and they hoped to have most service restored for the morning rush hour Friday, but warned of scattered delays, and they said service would continue to be suspended on the Port Washington line.

City officials said they would focus Friday on cleaning up the debris from the storm - particularly downed tree limbs in many parts of the city - but they cautioned they were still trying to determine the scope of the task, New York Times reports.

Police say a driver was killed and her passenger was injured when a tree fell on a car on a road in Queens. Numerous minor injuries were reported elsewhere.

The weather service had issued tornado warnings for parts of the city. Investigators will map out the width and intensity of the storm to determine if there was a tornado.

The last tornado touchdown in New York City was recorded in July in the Bronx, according to The Associated Press.

Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
