Dear Commons Community,
Yesterday, the remnants of Hurricane Ida ripped through the New York City metropolitan area and other parts of the Northeast after causing havoc in Louisiana, Mississippi, and other parts of the South. Tornadoes were reported in New Jersey. New York City declared its first flood emergency in its entire history. Hundreds of cars were abandoned on parkways. And the Metropolitan Subway System, the commuter lifeline of the City, shut down a number of services due to flooding. The videos above tell the story better than words can.
Hopefully, our Big Apple will recover soon!
