Leave a comment

Heavy rains and thunderstorms may cause flash flooding throughout the borough.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory with up to one inch of rain per half hour forecasted to be poured on Queens through 2 p.m.

Forty mph winds are expected to accompany the thunderstorm.

Heavy rain over a short period of time caused massive flooding in many areas of Queens two weeks ago, placing streets under water, while flooding residents’ basements.
