Previously, it was a sign

A lot of parked cars at random, random on the streets. At first I thought that people just throwing cars at random, but then asked one of the drivers. It turned out that the flow of water is to scatter the machine haphazardly

And this is - Salon Selick

Parking at the house 50 meters from the Belt Parkway, which yesterday was flooded

Windows Ven beaten before, but the water is added

On the next street flooded yard

Pumping water out of the basement

The same house, which was flooded parking

Calvert Vaux Park

The road in front of the park

Belt Parkway, between 5 and 6 outputs. A little ducked

Dier Offerman Park and the street around him

The most common sound on the streets - the roar of the sirens of police, fire and ambulance vehicles

Another Burned car

He came out into the street Neptune Ave. Judging by the cars, the water there was about 1-1, 5 height

Dragged the trash. Location - mystery

The sidewalk is covered with mud

Many car arrived together

Lying on the lawn, a police boat punt

Incidentally, most of the trees are not broken, but more often uprooted

Coney Island. Surf Ave.

Everything is covered with mud

So now looks the beach Coney Island

Wooden flooring is covered with sand

Sometimes even the boards never see

The ocean is still restless

Wind broke the sign Theater Shore. So many years have stood here and here you are you :(

Subway doors stupidly filled with foam. But Cho - also an option!

This is not a parked car - they issued into the street with water. Then I met one Russian man who said he was running away from the water by car, moving it until it with the other hand is not cut off. As a result, it took off from the roof of the police car on the boat. The car at the time was under water up to the middle of the glass

Another police boat

The machine gradually evacuated from the streets if their water is left, so that complicates the movement

Here you can see how the car spun. However, they can be parked for a couple of blocks away :)

By the way, a strange thing - new cars (up to 2-3 years) if you have been flooded, the driver's stand with pubescent windows. What is it? Some sensor that automatically opens when the car enters the water or what?

Lucky damn ... This rail in the trunk landed ...

And it rides Luna Park at Coney Island

It was the 2009 Accord

Even the bus somewhere dragged flow

Leaned ...

And inside this Bimmera downright sandpit

Already began to clear

And this X5 minutes hanging on the corner of Ocean Parkway and Brighton Beach

Gently put so

In general, as promised, the brunt of the southern part of Brooklyn. Particularly affected areas of Coney Island and Brighton Beach. Just 10-15 quarters and there is no such water only places toppled trees. As for those who drowned their cars, I can say one thing - are to blame. Within a few days passed the evacuation could even overtake the car out of the water. And then live 100 meters from the beach, hoping to chance ... It did not work.
