KEW GARDENS, Queens (WABC) -- Power was knocked out again for some Tri-State residents who just recently dealt with the outages from Isaias.

The storm whipped through New Jersey and into New York around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The powerful winds combined with the heavy rain caused trees to fall on cars, houses and power lines.

"Thank God nobody's hurt, everybody's fine, can't complain about that," said Charles Reichmann, a Kew Gardens resident. "It's a nuisance, but there are worse tragedies."
