Flash of wicked weather hits the Bronx

Wicked weather hit the Bronx today and was gone in a flash, leaving in its wake a mess across the borough.

The downpour and strong winds knocked over a scaffold in Soundview that neighbors say crash-landed on a playground. No children were in the playground when the scaffold fell.

City officials ask residents who come across wreckage left behind by the wicked weather to call 311 and report it.
