BROOKLYN - Potholes in East New York are wreaking havoc on drivers.

A cratered street located in the underpass on East New York Avenue near Pacific Street took out plenty of tires, forcing police to block off the area with cones. 

The Department of Transportation says it sent out a crew Wednesday night to make repairs, and is busy repairing potholes throughout the borough and city. 

For anyone whose vehicle is damaged by a pothole, they can file a claim against the city to try and get money back for the repair fees.
