Ida’s Remnants Hit New York: Everything You Need to Know
Threats of catastrophic flooding rain — a month’s worth in a day — along with tornadoes and raging winds grip the tri-state area Wednesday into Thursday as the remnants of Ida slam the region following its devastating landfall in Louisiana as one of the strongest hurricanes ever to directly hit America.
A tornado warning is in effect for Hunterdon County in New Jersey until 7:45 p.m., and for Middlesex, Morris and Somerset counties until 8:15 p.m.
The risk of tornadoes increased for the New York City metro area and central and southern New Jersey, with all five boroughs and Long Island now well within the “more likely” zone. The greatest risk of twisters will likely last through midnight — and New Jersey appears to be most at risk.
