Flights Suspended At Newark Airport Due To Flooding

The New York Times reports:

Torrential rain brought by remnants of Hurricane Ida caused severe flooding across parts of Newark on Wednesday night and into Thursday, rendering streets impassable and prompting Newark Liberty International Airport to temporarily suspend flights.

Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency late Wednesday night and asked residents to “stay off the roads, stay home, and stay safe.” More than 70,000 customers in New Jersey were without power by early Thursday morning, according to reports compiled by PowerOutage.us.
