Posted 4 minutes ago

With the remnants of Hurricane Ida hammering NYC, the National Weather Service issued the first-ever Flash Flood Emergency for the city.


Flood waters poured into subway stations across the city.

This looks more like a subway car wash than a subway station. This flooding has to be doing an incredible amount of damage to the NYC subway system.

Above ground, the situation was equally as terrifying. This city bus flooded, forcing riders to stand on seats inside.

Hero bus driver managed to get us safely through the 3-4 feet of rain coursing down the boulevard, but only seemed to be getting worse.

Finally made it through to higher ground and a fellow passenger exclaims ‘oh no I missed my stop..’

It’s the second time in two weeks that the city has experienced flash flooding caused by tropical storms.

Outside our apartment in Brooklyn right now as tropical storm Ida hits NYC. A legit river. Never seen it like this. Stay safe everyone. ❤️ #TropicalStormIda
