This morning the city woke up to a fresh sheet of snow, and terrifying news of a crane collapse in Tribeca. The snow should be done with shortly, but transportation delays will likely continue for awhile. In fact, right now, there's either delays or service changes reported on every single line!

As for the crane collapse, it occurred around 8:30am at a construction site at 60 Worth Street in Tribeca, between West Broadway and Church. One man in his 30s was killed while sitting in his parked car, and at least two others are seriously injured. Mayor de Blasio said site workers were securing the crane for high winds at the time of the collapse, NY1 reports. The 1, 2 and 3 trains are skipping Franklin and Chambers Street stations in both directions, and Worth Street is closed to all traffic until further notice.

Here's horrifying video of the crane falling:
