Water Cascades Into New York City Subway Station as Remnants of Ida Bring Flash Flooding

Water cascaded into New York City’s subway stations as the remnants of Hurricane Ida brought flash flooding to New York on September 1.

Transit authorities said train services may be “extremely limited” amid the heavy rainfall and flooding. The flash flooding prompted Mayor Bill de Blasio to declare a state of emergency for the city.

This video filmed by Alex Etling shows a train arriving at Jefferson Street Station in Brooklyn being hit by a waterfall of water created by the flash flooding from the street.

“There was a tremendous amount of water, and I was surprised that the subway operator still opened the doors, and even more surprised to see passengers jump out!” Etling told Storyful. Credit: Alex Etling via Storyful
