The rain here in Queens last night from about 9pm-1am was insane. Still getting a steady moderate to at times heavy rain.

I didn't think I would have anything to report but I do. We have been having heavy rain for at least 20 minutes here in Williamsport, PA, where Henri was not supposed to reach. It looks like it won't last much longer. There is even light rain in the county to our west. I see on the radar that it is raining all the south to almost Washington, DC, which I don't think was predicted either.

So the ocean stayed in the ocean in downtown Jersey City, unlike with the last big one, Superstore Sandy. But you guys got so much rain. I am wondering how all the people living in basement apartments on my old block are doing. With Sandy, they got water close to their ceilings and in my building above the ceiling and up the stairs to the first floor. I am afraid they may have gotten flooded again. I didn't think that would happen.

Not being in Jersey City, I cannot definitely answer that. But, I highly doubt it because theres not even a remotely threat of storm surge like Sandy. In NJ, this is just a rainstorm.

I know they didn't get storm surge this time, thank God, in Jersey City. But if Brooklyn got more than 6 inches of rain, the basement apartments on my old block got wet, I am afraid. Flooding was a problem before and the added apartment towers means a lot of bare ground that soaked up the rain is now covered.

They also had problems with the sewers handling water. With Irene the guys in our building downstairs and our other neighbors in ground level apartments got flooded out and it wasn't the actual storm water that caused it. The City was working on things when I left in 2015 but between those old systems and more people moving in, I don't know how much they were able to improve things.

Strange but true that right now NYC is not getting rain but places in PA that are not that far east of me in Williamsport are getting rain. And this is happening after the storm shifted east and landfall was in Rhode Island, not Long Island. For what was billed as a Southern New England storm, PA is managing to get a lot of rain from it.
