Nikki Blonsky suffered a broken tooth after a freak accident involving a watch as Hurricane Irene hit New York.

The "Hairspray" star was on lockdown as the storm lashed the city on Sunday, but she was left in desperate need of a dentist after cracking her tooth.

In a series of posts on her page, she writes, "Never try 2 change time on a watch... u pop da crown with ur (your) teeth aka (also known as) #justcrackedatooth.

"And of course I chip my darn tooth during a hurricane when dentists will prob not be (in) their offices... just my luck."
