CNN is reporting that the East and Hudson rivers have begun to overflow in parts of Lower Manhattan. Dramatic pictures show reporters ankle-deep in river water as they stand on the pavement beside the rivers, and water sliding over the embankment near the South Street Seaport.

Battery Park has reported a total water level near 8.6 feet, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Senior Producer Rose Arce report the Hudson River has overflowed its banks in lower Manhattan with flooding occurring as far as a block inland in the city’s meat packing district.
