Heavy rain leads to flooding in City Island

Posted: Updated:

City Island residents are facing puddles, wet streets and heavy downfalls Saturday, causing one street to flood earlier in the day. 

Twitter user @CI_Rising, captured the flooding on Ditmars Street. Another user, @JohnDoyle4NYC, retweeted the video, adding “Sadly, this happens regularly on this block.”

 

When News 12 arrived on the block, the flood had receded from what was captured on the video. However, the rain is continuing later into Saturday.

People venturing out in the rain are advised to drive slowly and use proper rain gear.
