Commuters wade through water as Storm Elsa floods New York subway stations

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Commuters wade through water as Storm Elsa floods New York subway stations” – below is their description.

Several subway stations were flooded and major roads were cut in New York on Thursday ahead of the expected arrival of Storm Elsa, which has moved up the US East Coast after lashing Florida with wind and rain.

Between 2 and 4 inches of water fell in a series of thunderstorms over the city and surrounding areas on Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service (NWS) said, “causing extensive flash flooding in certain places.”

Subway passengers posted video footage on Twitter of flooded platforms at the 157th Street station north of Manhattan.

Commuters could be seen waist-deep in the water, crossing a dark pool to reach the station’s platforms.
