Cleanup efforts in Lower Manhattan were continuing Sunday after a powerful storm knocked down several trees Saturday.

The storm tore down seven trees in Battery Park City, sending people running for safety. Downed branches shattered the glass over the patio of the Merchants River House restaurant.

People who were in the area said the storm seemed to come out of nowhere.

Crews had started cutting up the fallen trees Saturday night, but residents asked them to stop because the chainsaws were so loud.

Crews resumed working Sunday morning.
