Drenching downpours on Wednesday flooded out neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens and caused mudslides and washouts in Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.
The New York City Office of Emergency Management said residents impacted by Wednesday’s flooding should contact 311 to report damage to their homes or businesses. New Yorkers can also report any damage at nyc.gov/311.
Activists say the Parks Department is ignoring the “immediate danger” of giant, rotted out trees that surround the lake at Prospect Park.
Brooklyn residents say part of Prospect Park’s landscape has become a landfill.
