As much as 4 inches of rain fell in New York City Friday morning, causing massive flooding in Brooklyn. The flooding came as a shock to many as New York City experiences multiple Nor’easters a year. NYC Nor’easters usually dump inches of rain or feet of snow on the city. Flooding images seen Friday are not traditionally seen with Nor’easters, meaning Friday’s floods were a result of infrastructure failure. This is as RINO United States Senators attempt to send more money to Ukraine.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency as flood waters swamped New York City streets and subway tunnels. There are also reports of water rescues taking place. This would not be shocking as videos from Brooklyn show cars submerged under feet of water.
Wow, such horrific flooding in New York City. Mitch McConnell, John Thune and John Cornyn should stop worry about funding Ukraine so much and start worrying about what’s being funded in the USA.

According to the National Weather Service, between 3 and 6 inches of rain fell across New York City. That may seem like a lot, but New York City experiences yearly storms of this magnitude. A Noreaster usually dumps between 1-2 feet of snow on New York City. This converts to about 12-24 inches of rain. When all the snow melts, there is never flooding like what New York City experienced on Friday, clearly highlighting what happened on Friday had more to do with infrastructure than weather.
It is to be expected that New York Democrats will blame Friday’s flooding on climate change, but the facts do not point to this conclusion.
This is as United States Senators Mitch McConnell, John Thune, and John Cornyn are attempting to force the United States House’s hand to pass a new spending bill that sends millions of more dollars to Ukraine.
As each day passes, more and more American voters are turning against the Ukraine War as American cities and towns crumble due to a lack of resources.
