The remnants of Hurricane Ida unloaded a historic deluge in New York City and the surrounding area on Wednesday night, triggering states of emergencies in New York and New Jersey and leading to at least eight deaths.

The torrent left New York City at a standstill, with most subway lines shut down and a citywide travel ban prohibiting all non-emergency vehicles from roads until 5 a.m. Nearly 250,000 people in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey were without power as of early Thursday.
