Record rainfall across City
From Eyewitness News:
In Queens, JFK is reporting a record: the most rain it has ever had in a single day.
7.50 inches of rain and counting as of 4:30 p.m.
But the rain is certainly not contained to the airport.
On 147th Avenue and 235th Street, water from a flooded pond at Brookville Park is almost over the bridge.
The flooding is so significant that cars are stalled out and drivers are thinking twice about even getting behind the wheel.
In Middle Village, Queens, there is flooding on Metropolitan Avenue near Cooper Avenue.
The floodwater reached halfway up car tires.
So drivers had to slow down to clear the flooded area.
