Causing massive floods across the highways, subway passages, streets, apartment complex close to the ground.
The Big Apple Is Drowning
Major part of traffic is stuck in transit, most people can’t go home or use the fast way lane to get home. The subways are out of commission till the entire issue is resolved. And let’s not talk about the rodents. Most of them scurried away from the drains and sewage.
To make the matter worse: The Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx is flooded, traffic has been kept on hold while traffic control is figuring out how to get people to turn back. Most of the waters already caught up to the tires. The tropical storms have been putting New York City residents under pressure. Most people are locked inside their homes.
