Only Minor Injuries After Tree Crushes N.Y. School Bus

Local authorities New York City said eight students and three adults are expected to be OK after gusty winds toppled a tree onto their school bus, reports NBC New York.

The incident occurred Monday morning in Queens as a severe storm left the tri-state area. La Guardia Airport recorded wind gusts of 40 mph.

The tree limbs crushed the right side of the bus and the windshield. The students were escorted off the bus through the rear emergency exit, and a report state that most of the children appeared fine.

However, the students were still transported to a local hospital as a precaution.

Meanwhile, the weather forced some schools in nearby Connecticut to cancel classes.
