Cars Drive Along Flooded Street in Hoboken

Heavy rainfall brought on by the remnants of Hurricane Ida flooded roads in Hoboken, New Jersey, prompting the city’s Office of Emergency Management to declare a state of emergency.

Video posted on September 1 shows cars driving through the floodwater.

Residents were instructed to stay at home and “shelter-in-place,” said a statement from the city’s Office of Emergency Management. “All non-emergency vehicles are to remain off the roadways. Non-essential vehicles on the roads will be issued a summons. NJ Transit bus service is suspended until further notice.”
