The tropical storm Ida hit NYC and brought with it torrential rain that causes floods in the middle of the city. National Weather Service had to issue flash flood warnings a few days ago for the first time in the city’s metropolitan area.
And as people watched a small part of history being made, everyone took out their smartphone to film some of the most severely affected areas. From the toilet to the streets, here are 20 tweets to recap on what happened.
