NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tuesday’s storms created wet and miserable conditions for commuters across our area. The remnants of what was once Hurricane Florence impacted New York City in a big way, soaking subway stations and creating flash floods across much of the Tri-State area.

Rain deluged a subway at 42nd Street/Bryant Park station.

“Just got off the C at 34th and got wet getting off the train because guess what! It’s raining on the platform,” wrote Keara Benton on Twitter.

Twitter user Rory Mondshein posted video of flooding at Penn Station.

“For anyone that says our transit system is fine and we can’t afford to fix it, check out Penn Station in a storm and tell me that it’s not going to cost our taxpayers more money to make short term repairs to fix the system [once] and for all,” Rory Mondshein wrote.

Commuters say the waters started rushing in so fast, transit officials couldn’t keep up. They deployed crews to help put caution tape and signs warning of wet floors, but riders say the MTA needs more than brooms to help fix the system’s ailing infrastructure.

“The subway system is falling apart, they’re doing the one train, you look up and half the metal is missing,” straphanger Anita said.

Officials say Tuesday’s flooding wasn’t due to any type of defects at the stations. Instead, they say heavy rain can overwhelm the sewer system in the street which then flows down the subway steps and air vents.

The flash flooding wasn’t limited to the subways.

Twitter user Kevin Skinner tweeted a photo of “waves on the street in Astoria.”

Jeremy Rosenberg posted a photo of “substantial flooding” along 48th Avenue in Long Island City.
