4 People Are Dead After Catastrophic Flooding In NYC


Things are taking a turn for the worse in New York City.

Multiple reports coming from New York have declared that up to 4 people have died so far due to historic flash flooding in the Big Apple.

The four people who died were from Queens and Brooklynn and died due to being trapped in their basements.

The death toll could rise even more after videos have shown apartments and cars being completely flooded.

Just take a look at some of the flooding happening in New York right now:

CBS 2 News covered the major flooding occurring in NYC:

At least four people were killed when the remnants of Hurricane Ida battered New York City with historic rain and flooding late Wednesday night.

The NYPD said a 45-year-old woman and 22-year-old man were killed by flood waters in Jamaica, Queens. A 48-year-old woman died in Rego Park, and a 66-year-old man died in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency shortly after midnight.

She urged people to stay inside and avoid any unnecessary travel.

The Washington Post covered the story too:

The remnants of Hurricane Ida unloaded a historic deluge in New York City and the surrounding area on Wednesday night, triggering states of emergencies in New York and New Jersey and leading to at least five deaths.

The torrent left New York City in a standstill, with most subway lines shut down and a travel ban prohibiting all non-emergency vehicles from roads until 5 a.m. Nearly 250,000 people in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey were without power as of early Thursday and at least four people have died in New York and at least one has died in New Jersey.
