    how many times does someone have to be told, if the road is covered with water, dont drive in it?

  • deegee says:

    Really bad around west Kennedy and Clifton

  • gabi says:

    why are kids in the water? C”v there can be a wire or s/t electric there. Does anyone remember what happened in Monsey to the kid who went out after a storm? Be careful.


    children should not be playing in this water–it is backing up from the storm drains–who knows what else is in this water

  • Goldy says:

    Why were there children in the middle of the streets while cars were driving through the flooded streets??
