BAY RIDGE - Officials at the Office of Emergency Management are urging residents to keep an eye out for downed trees and power lines tonight.

Brooklyn commuters faced a tough time getting around today with steady rain and gusty winds pummeling the tri-state area.

In Bay Ridge, pedestrians armed with umbrellas and holding onto their hats went about their business braving the wicked weather. Drivers were urged to be cautious as rain has decreased visibility and created slick road conditions.
