New York State Governor Kathy Hochul has declared a state of emergency in NYC due to excessive flooding—a harrowing reality for New Yorkers trying to commute today.

Already, as of noon on Friday, more than 5 inches have already fallen in parts of NYC, prompting a citywide flash flood warning. At a press conference today, Mayor Eric Adams said we could see as much as 8 inches fall by the end of the day.

Terminal A at LaGuardia Airport has been closed due to flooding, as have many roads across the city, such as the FDR Drive in Manhattan, the Cross Island Parkway and the Bronx River Parkway. The MTA has also suspended multiple lines because of the flooding. Metro-North Harlem and New Haven services are also suspended.

It is a mess, and there will be no let-up until tomorrow.

New Yorkers are capturing the insanity that is unfolding around them on the streets, in the subway stations and at the airport. These are the most insane among them right now:
