NY: Before-and-after satellite images show flooding in NY, NJ after Hurricane Ida

Dramatic satellite images show the catastrophic flooding Hurricane Ida left in its wake in New York and New Jersey, when the storm’s tail-end battered the Northeast.

The superstorm left at least 46 people dead across five states, including 25 in the Garden State and at least 13 in the Big Apple.

The record-breaking rainfall caused widespread flooding and damage in multiple communities on both sides of the Hudson River.

Before-and-after photos capture a waterlogged Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, the Major Deegan Expressway turned into a river, and various shocking scenes from Jersey, including Somerville, Manville, South Bound Brook and New Brunswick — showing the towns submerged in muddy water.
