The National Weather Service earlier issued a Flash Flood Warning for the New York City area and due to a flooding condition, the Cross Bronx Expressway was temporarily closed in both directions at Jerome Avenue in The Bronx. There are two more rounds of rain coming our way before welcoming a clearer day.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall caused flooding of urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses, as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground.
