NYC Flooding

Undoubtedly, you have heard the media reports about the flooding in New York City. 

Flooding at LaGuardia.
New York Post
Rainfall till 3pm EDT. There was an area of 7" south and southeast of Kennedy Airport.

Here is the radar as of 3:12pm EDT. Flooding continues to worsen in western Long Island. 
The line of thunderstorms (red) that has caused the flooding continues to move north northeast. 

The flash flooding in NYC was very well forecast. Here's an example from Dr. Ryan Maue from yesterday.
The problem is that school districts did not call of school based on these forecasts nor did other businesses take proactive measures. 

Great weather forecasts do not one any good unless they are acted upon.

Late News: The info below came in at 4:52pm.
