Hurricane Henri causes street flooding in Brooklyn, New York

This clip filmed on Saturday (August 21), shows street flooding in Brooklyn, New York, caused by Hurricane Henri. The storm kept on track to wreak havoc on New York early Sunday, but early downpours had already sparked major flooding in the Big Apple by Saturday night, shuttering subways and inundating roadways. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the hurricane was on course to make landfall on Long Island or in southern New England by midday Sunday. Storms caused in part by moisture from Henri, hit the region late Saturday, bringing heavy rains and flash floods to New York City. The storm forced drivers out of their cars in Brooklyn.
