Police in New York City reported eight deaths, as basement apartments suddenly filled with water and freeways and boulevards turned into rivers.
“We saw a horrifying storm last night, unlike anything we have seen before,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority suspended all service overnight because of the flooding. Some limited service was operating Thursday morning.
The storm moved into southern New England overnight where inundated roads were causing commuter delays.
Gov. Kathy Hochul sad the White House has offered aid to deal with the aftermath of the flooding.
“I told him we’ll take (Biden) up on that,” Hochul said.
Sen. Chuck Schumer backed Hochul and the White House pledge, saying he will work to make New York declared a disaster area.
