New York City is Under State of Emergency due to Record-breaking Rain

Bill de Blasio, New York City Mayor declared a state of emergency on Wednesday night due to what they call a “historic weather event” with record-breaking rain across the whole city leading to flooding causing dangerous conditions on all the roads.

CNN reported earlier that majority of all the subway lines in New York were suspended late on Wednesday as Tropical Storm Ida brought inclement weather conditions with heavy rain with the threat of flash floods and tornadoes to parts of the northern mid-Atlantic.

New York City authorities announced that all non-emergency vehicles were banned from New York City’s streets until 5 a.m. (0900 GMT) on Thursday.

National Weather Service recorded at least five flash-flood emergencies issued since Wednesday evening, reaching from just west of Philadelphia through northern New Jersey.

Earlier on Wednesday night, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy also declared a state of emergency in response to the Ida typhoon.

The mayor urged people to not go outside.

The city mayor said on Twitter, “Please stay off the streets tonight and let our first responders and emergency services get their work done. If you’re thinking of going outside, don’t. Stay off the subways. Stay off the roads. Don’t drive into these heavy waters. Stay inside.”
