Heavy rainfall brought on by the remnants of Hurricane Ida flooded roads in Hoboken, New Jersey, prompting the city’s Office of Emergency Management to declare a state of emergency.
Video posted on September 1 shows cars driving through the floodwater.
Residents were instructed to stay at home and “shelter-in-place,” said a statement from the city’s Office of Emergency Management. “All non-emergency vehicles are to remain off the roadways. Non-essential vehicles on the roads will be issued a summons. NJ Transit bus service is suspended until further notice.”
New Jersey Gov Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for the Garden State in response to the severe weather.
Similar extreme weather was experienced across a wide area along the East Coast. Credit: @daveactual via Storyful
