Hurricane Ida wreaks havoc on New York, with subways swamped and cars forbidden.
NEW YORK has been flooded as Storm Ida wreaks havoc on the city with torrential rain and tornadoes.
Storm Ida has wreaked havoc over much of the United States. It began in Louisiana and has subsequently migrated to the northeastern United States. The storm’s latest victim is New York City. It has resulted in extensive flooding as a result of record rainfall in regions of New York and New Jersey. Here is a map of the floods.
Storm Ida’s flash floods and tornadoes have killed at least 14 people in the northeastern United States.
Floods have wreaked havoc on New York and New Jersey’s streets and subway stations.
The governors of both states have declared states of emergency as a result of this.
Kathy Hochul, the governor of New York, declared a state of emergency on Twitter, saying, “I am declaring a state of emergency to assist New Yorkers affected by tonight’s storm.”
Due to floods, the great majority of New York’s subway lines have been shut down.
Non-emergency cars are prohibited from driving in New York City.
On August 29, Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana, the United States.
The storm made landfall as a category four hurricane, was weakened to a tropical storm, and then spread through the northeastern United States.
The storm’s leftovers wreaked havoc on the northeastern United States, including tornadoes and flash flooding.
Flooding is particularly dangerous in New York City.
There were 520 miles of waterfront in the city, as well as many low-lying neighborhoods.
Flooding is projected to become more common in the future as a result of climate change.
The most recent floods in the city are among the worst in years.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has warned residents that future flooding will be “far worse.”
He went on to say that weather forecasters were not accurate enough and that weather forecasts were “failing.”
“Every attempt at projection, to put it plainly, is failing us,” he remarked.
“We’re getting projects from the top experts… that are turned into a farce in minutes.”
Experts predicted three to six inches of rain on Wednesday, he said.
However, “with practically no warning,” this developed into “the most single hour of rainfall in New York history.”
