The flood was caused by remnants of the devastating Hurricane Ida. The damages caused by Ida, according to reports, is valued at an estimated amount of $18 billion.

New York transit authorities said multiple trains were disrupted due to “excessive water” entering the station.

On Friday, the White House announced that President Joe Biden will travel to New Orleans to survey storm damage from the hurricane and meet with state and local leaders from impacted communities.

Ida made two landfalls — first, near La Columba, Cuba on Aug. 27 with sustained winds of 80 mph and again on Sunday, Aug. 29 as a Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 150 mph.
