During yesterday’s rains in new York city was flooded 7 metro stations

Heavy rains in new York have created difficulties for the movement of not only the city, but also underneath. Flooded was 7 subway stations. However, the trains never stopped.

Most of the bad weather went to the stations:

  • Dekalb Avenue L stop in Brooklyn,
  • 59th Street station in Midtown,
  • 1 train stop in Manhattan
  • 6 Longwood Avenue stop in the Bronx.

Stairways and platforms was a real waterfall. Passengers had to jump through huge puddles or simply to spank them. Wet and those who rode the trains: the spray got into the cars through the front door.

Summer in new York is fickle and capricious as a girl. A week ago, residents of the Big Apple were dying of heat. And here in the city for prolonged thunderstorms and heavy rains. Over Brooklyn was even seen «the birth of a tornado».
