New York. In response to historic flooding from Ida that killed more than a dozen people in New York City and ground mass transit to a halt, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday detailed new initiatives he hopes will help avoid similar catastrophes in the future.
De Blasio announced the Climate Driven Rain Response plan, which will focus on a different and more severe kind of warning system. It will also come with more drastic action, particularly regarding those New Yorkers living in basement apartments.
