Southern Brooklyn

Flooding Reported All Around Neighborhood

Taken from Masal Cafe in the Lundy’s building by Rovshan Danilov.

People are reporting that streets, sidewalks and basements all around Sheepshead Bay and Manhattan Beach are flooding. The storm is definitely here, and we’ll be seeing the worst of it over the next couple of hours.

Where we are, near the Sheepshead Bay train station, water has come to levels that I, personally, have never seen it before. And we watched it move up residential blocks at a quick pace. In the three to five minutes we stood outside to watch, the water moved more than 50 feet up the sidewalk.

For now, we’re signing off to attend to the various things we need to attend to. We will only be posting major updates throughout the night, and roundups of damage and flooding will come in the morning. If there’s anything important, we can be reached at (347) 985-0633 or [email protected]

Good luck and be safe, folks.

  1. I’m at Bedford and Y and so far, no flooding and we have power but theres a tree down on Bedford between Y and Z. It must be blocking the street because cars turning around. I would go out to take a look but I don’t want to be killed by a tree branch.

  2. My family lives on Bedford and Voorhies… any idea what the situation is over there? I live out of state, can’t get a hold of them and am pretty worried.

  3. i’m on 19th, between x and w. so far no flood.

    but my aunt on the other hand, has flooding in the basement. water is coming out from the floor drain. shes on 29th, between x and w.

  4. We’re hearing of multiple transformers blowing in the neighborhood. That could explain the smell of smoke

  5. Did anyone hear about the bay comming down the streets past Stop & Shop/
    My neighbor just told me that the water is comming up from the bay towards Ave X?

  6. Does anyone know the probability of this flooding coming up due to tide? Will it likely go back down before it comes back up by 8am tomorrow (the next high tide?)

  7. I live on Y between 19th and ocean. It started as a big puddle around 7:30pm then got bad quick. By 8pm the water was ankle deep, now the water is halfway up on cars. So far so good with the power

  8. Neck Road and E.19th is dry, just some leaves, small branches and runaway garbage. Saw a minivan pass the 4 way stop on W and E. 19th with no issue or water.

  9. Do you know if the water is approaching X? Do you know if the basements around there are getting flooded? Seems like it’s probably from the storm drains as there’s no more rain.

  10. live on east 29th between x and y, saw sparks coming from lines on east 28th from ave x to ave y, called 911 about it

  11. Stuck in Boston for who knowshow long I have three cats at home on Avenue V and 26th…it hasn’t reached that far yet, right?

  12. East 13 and ave z has a out 4 ft of water my family’s house is on that block they not there but neighbors told us no power and flooded badly

  13. And to think, Masal is ground-level, unlike some of the nearby businesses such as Sveika and China Buffet.

  14. Hearing fire trucks around ocean ave and P. Smells like there’s a huge fire somewhere nearby? Can anyone confirm?

  15. Please – can anyone update me on the power and flooding status in Manhattan beach? Thanks and be safe!

  16. I’d like to know too. Anyone know how the dead end blocks of Manhattan Beach are doing? i.e. Corbin and Oriental?

  17. Have family that lives on Ave X bw E 7th and Coney Island Ave. We can’t get in touch with them. Anyone have any helpful info on that area, please?

  18. Does anyone know if there was any flooding of homes on East 26th Street between Voorhies and Avenue Z?
