New York City Declares Emergency Due to Heavy Rainfall


New York City Declares Emergency Due to Heavy Rainfall:

Heavy rain pounded the New York metropolitan area on Friday, causing widespread disruptions, including subway and commuter rail line closures, highway standstills, basement flooding, and a temporary shutdown of LaGuardia Airport. This deluge marked one of the city’s rainiest days in decades.

By midday, certain parts of Brooklyn had already received nearly 7 inches (18 centimeters) of rain, with some areas experiencing an astonishing 2.5 inches (6 centimeters) in a single hour, according to reports from weather and city authorities. Meanwhile, John F. Kennedy Airport recorded nearly 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rainfall, surpassing its September daily record set during Hurricane Donna in 1960, as confirmed by the National Weather Service.

Further heavy rainfall was predicted to continue.

This event occurred two years after the remnants of Hurricane Ida brought record-breaking rainfall to the Northeast, resulting in at least 13 fatalities in New York City, particularly in flooded basement apartments. While no fatalities or severe injuries have been reported as of yet from Friday’s storm, it evoked unsettling memories of that prior disaster.
