Rain floods New York subway stations

Rain floods New York subway stations

A rainstorm caused at least two New York City subway stations to flood early Monday. 

Twitter user Josh Guild uploaded video of a flooded station at 145th Street and Broadway in Hamilton Heights. The video shows several inches of water in the station as water pours down the stairs to the station.


The National Weather Service on Monday issued flash flood warnings for several counties in New Jersey and New York, including New York County, which includes Manhattan, and Bronx County.  

A reporter for The Hollywood Reporter also uploaded video to Twitter that shows flooding at the 42nd Street Bryant Park station in mid-town Manhattan.

Water can be seen pouring into the station from overhead as subway riders exit the train cars. 

The flash flood warning issued for New York and Bronx counties is in place until Monday afternoon.

The flooding comes as New York's upcoming gubernatorial race heats up. Actress Cynthia Nixon announced last month that she would challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) in the September Democratic primary. Nixon in her campaign video announcement referenced the New York City subway, calling the system "broken."
