About 6:00 am this morning a huge thunder storm (A line storm, severe t-storm, tornado whathaveyou) rolled into parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Violent thunder and ligtening hit rooftops up and down my block and the rain poured down frequently being pushed violently into the window panes in wind gusts. The whole atmospheric drama woke me up. Dora was even a bit concerned.
By 6:30 am, the storm mostly past. Some trees in the borough were knocked down. Parts of Sheepshead Bay and the Far Rockaway were flooded and a pregnant woman even needed to be boat ferried out of her house after going into labor.
And the most damning thing of all…..no….not that thing……..the most damning thing of all was the NYC MTA neglected to inform the public that NO TRAINS WERE RUNNING due to track flooding and that the public should NOT USE THE MTA FOR THEIR MORNING COMMUTE.
