It honestly seems like the beginning of September really isn’t the best time for New York City. Twenty years ago, we had the attack on the Twin Towers that changed the world forever. This year, Hurricane Ida made sure that it would be another September for New Yorkers to never forget. The rain downpour was so bad, it looked like the entire city was underwater.

Sadly, at least 45 people have been reported dead after this insane storm. This was the very first time in New York City’s history that a flash flood emergency alert was issued, which is a pretty big deal. Residents were stuck in basements that were flooding rapidly, and in many places the electricity was out. It’s a historic amount of damage and a historic amount of human loss, that just further raises awareness for global warming and what it’s doing to our climate.
