On Wednesday night, the New York subway station plunged into the water. The floodwater turned the platform and stairs into waterfalls because the centennial subway system came to a halt.
Debris from Hurricane Ida left a path of destruction in New Jersey, smashing houses. The storm tore through New York City, flooding apartments and turning streets from the park slope to the highway through the Bronx into a river.
6 Subway trapped were evacuated
According to the MTA, at least six subways trapped between stations were evacuated, and the company said that due to historic rains, services on Thursday morning were very limited and the city received up to 6 inches of rain.
4 people died in Brooklyn and Queens
According to law enforcement sources, as the flooding increased, at least four people in Brooklyn and Queens died after being trapped in the basement.
