Faced with a stunning deluge on Friday, September 29, residents of New York, in the United States, tried their best to navigate a largely flooded city.
The streets were flooded, in some places under 30 centimeters of water. The flood lasted all day, Friday, September 29, and caused chaos in New York (United States). Motorists quickly find themselves trapped on roads transformed into rivers, forced to abandon their cars and sometimes ask for help to get out of a bad situation. Record rainfall caused sewers to overflow and shocked residents.

The further it goes, the more the bus becomes flooded. Users finish the tour standing on the seats. Water falls everywhere. In cascades, in the basements of buildings, in the subway, where torrents come down the stairs. Used every day by millions of New Yorkers, several lines had to be interrupted. It’s even raining on the docks. Also paralyzed, the La Guardia airport was flooded.
