Record-breaking rainfall led to historic flooding Wednesday evening in New York and New Jersey, with officials declaring rare emergencies warning people to stay away from dangerous flood waters to protect their lives.

Just after midnight on Thursday, Gov. Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency in New York. She urged people to stay of the roads.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy issued a state of emergency in response to the storm late Wednesday.

“Tropical Storm Ida is severely impacting all areas of our state,” he said. “The safety of our residents is our main priority, and we urge everyone to be informed of local weather conditions and to stay off the roads.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio followed suit.

A flash flood emergency was issued for New York City for the first time ever, according to the Weather Service. It was only the second time ever that the weather service issued such an alert for the region, with the first being for northeast New Jersey an hour prior.

  1. The lesson of this, is that if anyone would have warned anyone about this in advance, especially to any frum yid, such as warning to take precautions, they would have laughed in your face.

    This leitzanus isn’t limited to floods, it applies to warnings of holocausts as well, even when those approaching holocausts have warning signs.

    Never again? What, are you really that stupid?

  2. We have to fight the fake pandemic regulations, especially the current NYS masking mandate that is known to cause respiratory issues, skin problems, and other issues among children.
    The ‘roll-up-your-sleeve-for-yenim’s-sake-and-take-a-shot’ is even more false. Whether you want to take the ‘magic-injection’ or not, if it is being coerced — especially with shoddy science behind it (not just being ‘coached’ by well-meaning pharmaceutical salespeople as is usual), we must build a defense of resistance against its use and its attempted greater regulation into our Torah-based democratic society.
