Storm Elsa in Front of New York – Floods and Road Chaos

Several New York City subway stations were flooded and several roads were cut off before Hurricane Elsa swept across the eastern United States after Florida was battered by rain and wind.

Between two to five inches of water fell in a series of storms followed by thunderstorms over the city and surrounding areas on Thursday afternoon, the National Meteorological Service said. “Causing widespread flooding in certain areas.” Subway passengers posted on Twitter videos of flooded platforms at the station at 157th Street north of Manhattan. The footage shows passengers traveling up to their waists in a dark pool to reach the station platforms.

According to the director of the Public Transport Authority, some stations are completely flooded, and the main roads leading to the Bronx are temporarily closed, and traffic is difficult. New York police released footage of cars trapped in the water.

They warned that the floods could last until Friday morning, when Hurricane Elsa, which is moving from Florida, is expected to arrive. In addition to protecting the city after Hurricane Sandy 2012, which killed 44 people and paralyzed the US economic capital for days, floods are still dangerous for New York, and they are expected to be more frequent due to climate change.

“Lines 1 and A are really affected and remain heavily flooded,” Sarah Feinberg, director of MTA, New York’s public transportation administration, told a news briefing.

Some major roads, including those in the Bronx, are temporarily closed and traffic is heavy. New York police posted a video of cars trapped in the water on Twitter.

NWS has warned of possible flooding, with heavy rains expected from Hurricane Elsa. Despite work to protect the city from floods from Hurricane Sandy in 2012 – which killed 44 people and paralyzed the economic capital of the United States for days – the floods remain dangerous for New York, with frequent storms due to climate change.
