New York City Emergency Management advises drivers to be cautious amid flood threat
New York City Emergency Management is urging residents to prepare for flash floods and to drive carefully.
The agency says drivers should allow for extra travel time and drive slowly.
They recommend traveling on major streets or highways that may have less puddling.
They also advise residents who live in basement apartments in flood-prone areas to move to higher ground and wait out the storm.
The city encourages residents to sign up for Notify NYC, a free emergency notification system that offers up-to-date weather information.
