Remnants of Hurricane Ida Lash Northeast With Tornadoes, Heavy Rain, and Flash Floods

Three days after Ida devastated the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Mississippi, remnants of the storm are still causing dangerous weather for millions. Tornadoes have been spotted in Maryland and New Jersey as the storm heads north, and flash flood watches are in effect for much of the northeast as Ida dumps buckets of rain.

New York City and Northern New Jersey were under a flash flood emergency Wednesday night for the first time, according to the National Weather Service, as the storm approaches New England.

Earlier Wednesday, a tornado in Annapolis knocked down power lines and damaged a high school stadium and small businesses. Emergency crews are rushing to plug several gas leaks. Ida also unleashed a tornado south of Philadelphia in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, that damaged several homes.
