Video of Rain Water Flooding New York Subway Viewed Over 900,000 Times

A video of significant flooding in a New York City subway station has gone viral on social media.

The video, which shows water pouring out of the ceiling and flooding the platform and the tracks of Dyckman Street station in the Inwood section of Manhattan has been viewed more than 900,000 times.

"Good to see the NYC subway holding up through a rain storm," read the sarcastic caption on the video.

Some parts of New York City experienced flooding on Monday afternoon following torrential rains that swept through the area.

On Monday, the National Weather Service for New York issued a flash flood warning for the Bronx, Yonkers and New Rochelle.

The Twitter user with the handle SubwayCreatures who posted the original video of the flooding at the Dyckman Street station, later posted follow-up videos of additional flooding in the subway system.

In one video a woman can be seen walking down steps carefully as water pours onto the station floor.

Another video appears to show people walking out of a station that is beginning to flood.

The New York City Transit Subway Twitter page also replied to a series of pictures posted by News12 Brooklyn's Kurt Semder.

"Take a look at the flooding caused by this rain on Dyckman Street," Semder tweeted along with four pictures. In the pictures, multiple cars can be seen submerged by the rainwater while some cars move along on a parallel road.

"One clogged drain can back up an entire street," the NYCT subway page tweeted while sharing the pictures. When the streets above look like this, storm water inevitably makes it way to our tracks. That's why coordination between the MTA and partner agencies is vital to keep trains moving."

On Monday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams spoke about how the city is helping protect New Yorkers from the impacts of severe weather conditions.

During a press conference where he announced the first section of the East Side Coastal Resiliency Protection project, he marked the completion of a chain of storm surge barriers along the East Side, 45 ton, 79-foot-long sliding barrier.

This barrier is intended to keep homes and businesses safe in the event of extreme flooding in New York City," according to a Daily News report.

"The goal is to protect Lower Manhattan," Adams said. "Climate change is happening now right, here on our planet, and we have to be serious about it.

"The more we're seeing increasing temperatures and stronger storms, the more dangerous flooding in our coastal cities. We have to be prepared for that."
