The Independent published this video item, entitled “At least 45 dead as Storm Ida dumps ‘historic’ rain in north east” – below is their description.
Dozens of people are feared dead after Storm Ida dumped record levels of rain in parts of New York, New Jersey, and across the northeast US, causing widespread flooding.
The governors of New York and New Jersey declared a state of emergency last night as the deluge overwhelmed streets and subway stations.
Nearly all New York City subway lines were suspended late and all non-emergency vehicles were banned from New York City’s streets until Thursday due to the weather, city authorities said on Twitter.
“I am declaring a state of emergency to help New Yorkers affected by tonight’s storm,” New York governor Kathy Hochul said on Twitter.
