At least six people have been killed after Storm Ida dumped a month’s worth of rain on parts of the US.
Four of those who died were in New York City, while the other two were in New Jersey, according to NBC.
A state of emergency has been declared in both states after the remnants of a hurricane sparked flash floods, with subway services in New York City suspended.
Last night, New York City suffered its wettest hour on record, with more than 80mm of rain falling in Central Park in the space of 60 minutes.
That eclipsed the previous record of 49mm that was set in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Henri just last month.
Parts of Connecticut are also under a flash flood warning.
The casualties include a 19-year-old who was found dead at a flooded block of flats in Rockville, New Jersey, where water had almost reached the ceilings of the basement.
