Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood Warnings For Brooklyn, Queens


Well, when it rains it pours, folks. And it’s about to pour.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning until 3:15 p.m. for Queens and Brooklyn, and a severe thunderstorm warning until 2:30 p.m. for Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan.

According to the National Weather Service’s website, a “weak low pressure trough will linger over the region today and help trigger scattered to numerous thunderstorms into this evening. The trough will then pass to the east late Wednesday night.”

Let’s hope it washes away some of this humidity, and sets us up for a nice weekend.


  1. Yes you are correct Adam this is what I was told also. The flood zone ends on Ave X at my cornor accross the street. so I missed it by 1 block. They have Zones A B C and so on. I am in Zone B. 
    Thank you everyone for helping out

  2. I have Allstate also and they do not cover in a no flood zone what I was told from what I understand.
    thank you Lizi

  3. Homeowners’ insurance doesn’t cover floods. And to add [email protected]:disqus ‘s statement, flood insurance doesn’t take effect for 30 days after it’s bought unless you’re in a designated flood zone and must buy it as a condition of completing the purchase of your home.

  4. My insurer (Allstate) had me buy separate flood coverage through the National Flood Insurance Program a few years back. $417/year currently. Haven’t filed any claims yet.

  5. Is it even possible to buy flood insurance in a non flood zone?  Wouldn’t your standard homeowner’s policy cover the damage?

  6. Question would flood insurance cover a none floor zone? Even if your garage is flooded?
    when it like sheets of rain?

  7. The weather was really wierd today. The sun was out in Manattan Beach until after 3PM.  The rest of the sky was dark except where the sun was and you could hear thunder constantly from 1 to 3 PM in the sunshine.  At about 3:15, lifeguards ordered everyone out of the water and at 3:30 it finally started to rain.

  8.  you might want to call 311 and tell them about the problem your having. either that or landlord.

  9. Flash flood is right. In my basement. Always a joy to clean up after the storm sewer backs up.
