New York City's Overreaction to the Ira Floods

Because New York essentially ignored the outstanding forecasts of the flooding rains from the remains of Hurricane Ida, it has now reacted in a counterproductive manner. 

Early Saturday morning, a day that featured tornadoes in nearby Long Island, NYC sent out a notification for a forecast of a tenth of an inch of rain! This will quickly have the opposite effect NYC government intends --New Yorkers will tune out, or even disable, these messages. 

In the strongest possible way, I would urge the new mayor of NYC to stop with these unnecessary alerts and focus on genuine major weather-related threats.
