In a message published on Twitter, Rodriguez regretted human losses, material damages and interruption of essential services due to the deadly storm.

US media reported flash flooding killed at least 44 people in four Northeastern states as remnants of Hurricane Ida unleashed torrential rains that swept away cars, submerged New York City subway lines and grounded airline flights, officials said on Thursday.

The US National Weather Service reported that over 20 centimeters of rain were recorded in Central Park, New York, in just one houpr, which is an all-time record.

At least 150,000 homes were left without electricity and reports indicate that some houses even ‘exploded’ due to flooding.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called Ida ‘a historic weather event’ with ‘brutal flooding’ and ‘dangerous conditions’ on the roads.
