Wind rips off roofs on Quincy St., dozens homeless

BROOKLYN - Dozens of people were evacuated last night after strong winds ripped the roofs off several brownstones on Quincy Street.

The New York City buildings commissioner arrived on scene today to survey the damage and offer assistance to the impacted residents.

"Once we secure the roof, then we'll be able to have tenants in right away," says building owner Jabari N'Kosi.

The people who were forced out of their homes are currently staying with relatives or are receiving assistance from by the Red Cross.
