It's Raining So Hard In New York City It's Pouring Into The Subways And People Are More Miserable Than Ever

"Good morning and welcome to hell."

Posted on

People in New York and New Jersey — who were still asleep at 7:30 a.m. — were violently woken up to a loud flash flood warning piped onto their phones.

BITCH THAT FLASH FLOOD WARNING JUST TOOK 10 YEARS OFF OF MY LIFE @Apple NEXT TIME PLEASE JUST LET ME DROWN

They were not happy about it.

That flash flood warning text was really not needed. I literally woke up in a panic.

Fucking flash flood warning ⚠️ scared the living hell out of me

People who had to commute by car were met with already-flooded roads in parts of New Jersey.

Uh if you’re in Cranford NJ, the flash flood warning is very very real

However, for New Yorkers commuting by the already-shoddy subway, the flooding met them inside.

Probably a bad picture but the NYC subway station on 96th street is flooded... underground...

There was so much rain it was streaming down from the street and onto the subways walls...

Hey @NYCTSubway your station is leaking

Pouring down the stairs...

And cascading onto tracks and platforms, greeting people as they exited their trains.

Everyone who had any intention of leaving their subway car to get to work was given a complimentary shower of clean New York City rainwater!

@mariskreizman Hope you don’t have to get off at Bryant Park

And you didn't even have to leave the car itself, because, yes, it started raining inside of them.

RAINS INSIDE OF SUBWAY CAR; UNFAZED NEW YORKER CONTINUES TO EAT BREAKFAST SANDWICH

But NYC's commuters, resigned to this new level of hell, still went about their day. As we do.

Be careful out there everyone. Oh, and to Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio: FIX THE SUBWAY.

Rain Room but without the line! @MTA
