New York Mayor Bill de Bellasio has declared a state of emergency in the city in light of the “historic weather” caused by Hurricane “Ida” that hit the United States and caused many floods. Old DavidAn Israeli resident of New York spoke today (Thursday) with Gideon Oko on 103FM and told about what was happening: “We did not prepare for such a storm, no one warned, we were not told it was going to happen.“

“In the middle of the night it started to rain heavily and all of New York overflowed. My wife told me to come fast, I was in Manhattan, I have a catering company and I had a wedding, and our kitchen also started to rise in water. Luckily it was at the end of the event, but all my employees got stuck in Manhattan, no. There were trains, “he said.

An old man shared the dramatic moments when the flooding began: “Water started coming out of the kitchen. I opened the engine room door and saw water coming in from the walls. I thought it came from a water tank, but it’s just from the rain. We put towels to stop the water flow. “It’s reached the height of the foot or so. Eventually they took over the situation in Manhattan, but not elsewhere.”

“The rains stopped. It made a mess and kept going, those hours were crazy. I live in Long Island, in a neighborhood that is a 40 minute drive from town and in a warehouse at home I found flooding, everything was full of water. The water came from every possible direction, both from the sewer and the windows. “I have never seen anything like it. The force of the rain was insane. Even on the way home I saw trees on the floor, cars stuck in the middle of the road,” he added.
