Flooding Reported All Around Neighborhood


Taken from Masal Cafe in the Lundy’s building by Rovshan Danilov.

People are reporting that streets, sidewalks and basements all around Sheepshead Bay and Manhattan Beach are flooding. The storm is definitely here, and we’ll be seeing the worst of it over the next couple of hours.

Where we are, near the Sheepshead Bay train station, water has come to levels that I, personally, have never seen it before. And we watched it move up residential blocks at a quick pace. In the three to five minutes we stood outside to watch, the water moved more than 50 feet up the sidewalk.

For now, we’re signing off to attend to the various things we need to attend to. We will only be posting major updates throughout the night, and roundups of damage and flooding will come in the morning. If there’s anything important, we can be reached at (347) 985-0633 or tips@sheepsheadbites.com.

Good luck and be safe, folks.

    Just as an FYI – We’re dry at the very end of zone A at 22nd st and Y. Let’s hope it stays that way.

    I’m at Bedford and Y and so far, no flooding and we have power but theres a tree down on Bedford between Y and Z. It must be blocking the street because cars turning around. I would go out to take a look but I don’t want to be killed by a tree branch.

    • Steve

      I live on Y between 19th and ocean. It started as a big puddle around 7:30pm then got bad quick. By 8pm the water was ankle deep, now the water is halfway up on cars. So far so good with the power

      • Gary

        Do you know if the water is approaching X? Do you know if the basements around there are getting flooded? Seems like it’s probably from the storm drains as there’s no more rain.

    • Facrw98

      How bad is there. I left my car at e16th and y, next to the subway.

      • Gary

        I didn’t get down to 16th, didn’t want to risk my car.

  • sam

    Does anyone know the probability of this flooding coming up due to tide? Will it likely go back down before it comes back up by 8am tomorrow (the next high tide?)

    • This is all the result of the high tide…one that many were dreading as what could do real damage.
