Governor Kathy Hochul addresses the need for fixing infrastructure issues to avoid floods in the future

One thing Governor Kathy Hochul has set her focus on is to make improvements on infrastructure to help avoid flash flooding events like what has been seen in New York recently.

At her stop in Great Neck on Long Island she stated that every crisis offers a learning opportunity to better prepare.

Streams and rivers flooded the New York City area, infringing upon traffic, and as water receded submerged abandoned cars could be seen.

The rain Wednesday caused flooding in the subway stations and delays for commuters.

Nine people died in the flooding and Hochul has addressed President Joe Biden about receiving aid for the recovery.
