New York City In State Of Emergency After Ida Flooding Kills 44 In Northeast

The death toll in New York City on Thursday rose to 12 following heavy flooding from Hurricane Ida that the city's mayor referred to as a "historic weather event." This adds to a total of 44 people killed in the Northeast since the remnants of Ida brought life in the Big Apple to a halt.

"We’re enduring an historic weather event tonight with record-breaking rain across the city, brutal flooding and dangerous conditions on our roads," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote on Twitter on Wednesday when announcing a state of emergency for the city. The mayor urged New Yorkers to stay indoors and avoid traveling by any means in the city.

Hurricane Ida, which severely impacted New Orleans on Sunday with flooding and power outages, blazed a trail northward before reaching the Northeast late Wednesday. Flooding was so severe in New York that it prompted the city’s first-ever flash flood warning.
