Behold the flooding I witnessed on my way home from work today. I was stuck on the bus in traffic for 20 minutes in Long Island City, and then when I arrived in Maspeth, there was a lake on Maurice Avenue! This is the 3rd time this has happened – first on July 18th, then August 8th, and today, October 11th, 2007.

As one resident reported:

“Nothing is as scary as a heavy rain in October!

Everybody is at their doors and windows, watching the rising water in the streets.”
