NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Powerful rainstorms sprang up across the region Monday, creating flash flooding conditions in some spots.
But for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, there are no concerns about any possible flooding in the city’s subway system.
“Storms like this we normally handle fairly well. I mean, a few years back we had a torrential downpour and I think there were problems. But since then we’ve down an awful lot to make sure that all of catch basins are clean, all of our subway gratings are clean and this should not present a problem at all,” MTA chairman and CEO Tom Prendergast told WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb.
