Floodwater gushed down the aisle of an MTA shuttle bus in Brooklyn, New York, as remnants of Hurricane Ida brought severe flooding to the city on the night of September 1.

Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a state of emergency for New York City as power outages hit and transport was curtailed.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency late on Wednesday night, describing the flooding as “life-threatening,” and urging locals to avoid travel where possible.

Twitter user @TriumfNYC posted this footage after midnight, saying the bus was “full of water.”
