Ida, which entered the United States from Louisiana on August 29 and made history as the fifth strongest hurricane to hit the mainland, soon reached New York City on the east coast.
Hurricane Ida, which left a record rainfall in New York, where approximately 8.5 million people live, caused flooding of houses, roads and subway stations. A state of emergency has been declared in New York and its immediate neighbor New Jersey.
“Tonight, we are facing a historic weather event with record levels of citywide rain, heavy flooding and dangerous conditions on the roads,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
