Storm Henri causes travel chaos as Northeast hit by heavy rains

Henri weakened to a depression Sunday night, after earlier making landfall as a tropical storm in Rhode Island knocking out power to over 100,000 homes, causing flight cancelations and bringing record rainfall to New York City.

Yes but: It's expected to continue to unleashing heavy rains and triggering flooding across parts of southern New England and the Northern Mid-Atlantic States Through Monday, the National Hurricane Center warned.


In addition to being the wettest day since 2014... the 1.94" of rain that fell from 10pm to 11pm at Central Park last night was the wettest hour on record for New York City.

More rain fell in that one hour than any other since record keeping began. #Henri#NYCwx

The big picture: Airports appear to have remained open after Henri made landfall on Sunday afternoon, but more than 1,000 flights in or out of or within the U.S. were canceled, per the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

  • There were reports of widespread road flooding across New York City and New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service.

What they're saying: President Biden said Sunday that the government had mobilized resources to help the afflicted areas, in additon to him already approving emergency declarations for Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.

  • "This storm has the potential for widespread consequences across the region," Biden said.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
