New York City is currently seeing some major flooding and videos on Twitter show just how bad the flooding really is.
The aftermath of hurricane Ida has caused some catastrophic flooding in NYC and has caused NYC Mayor De Blasio to declare a state of emergency for New York City.
Many residents of New York have uploaded videos of flooded streets, subway stations and apartments being submerged with water.
Most residents of New York were totally surprised of the flooding and are lashing out to their Democratic leadership who were too busy forcing residents to get vaccinated then focus on New York’s crumbling infrastructure.

The New York Post had more details to add:
The New York subway stations were submerged in water on Wednesday night, as flash flooding turned platforms and stairwells into waterfalls as the century-old system ground to a halt.
The remains of Hurricane Ida left a path of destruction in New Jersey, tearing homes to pieces. The storm swept through NYC, flooding apartments and turning streets into rivers from Park Slope to the Cross Bronx Expressway.
At least a half dozen subway trains stuck between stations were evacuated, according to the MTA, which said service remained “very limited” Thursday morning due to historic rainfall which dumped as many as six inches of rain on the city in a matter of hours.
Geyser-like volumes of rainwater were seen gushing into the 28th Street station in shocking images tweeted by @SubwayCreatures. Rapids from the onslaught of rain overran the platform and spewed onto the tracks, footage showed.

NBC News covered the flooding too:
A “flash flood emergency” was issued for the first time in New York City as heavy rains from the remnants of Hurricane Ida lashed the region late Wednesday, spawning at least one tornado and causing flooding, officials said. Two deaths have been reported.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a state of emergency, and a “travel ban” barring non-emergency vehicles from streets and highways was in place until 5 a.m., officials said.
“We’re enduring an historic weather event tonight with record breaking rain across the city, brutal flooding and dangerous conditions on our roads,” de Blasio tweeted.
At least one person in New York City died. The New York City Fire Department said it responded to a report of flooding in Queens shortly after 11 p.m. and one person taken from the building was pronounced deceased. A second patient was taken to a hospital.
this flooding in New York is wild – there's a "flash flood emergency", the first one ever in NYC, with something like 10cm in rain an hour from Hurricane Ida. Much of the city seems like it's underwaterpic.twitter.com/Vyes4KcCdG
