New York officials to brief the media
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, New York City Mayor Eric Adams and other local leaders are expected to brief on the storm’s damage and ongoing flooding in the area.
Roof collapses, flooding and every NYC subway line affected
New York City first responders are responding to calls of minor roof collapses, flooded basements with people inside of them, and numerous cars stalled out on flooded roads with people inside them citywide but particularly in parts of Brooklyn and Queens but there are no fatalities so far, a senior NYC official says.
Right now, FDNY and NYPD are handling the situation and feel like they are getting to the calls quickly given the weather situation — but the rain is continuing, the official said.
Every single subway line is affected, according to the MTA with significant flooding on some of the lines.
