Footage was captured and initially shared on Citizen.

Saturday was the third wettest March day in recorded history, “with 3.66 inches of rain pouring down and much of that occurring in six hours,” according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist ReneĆ© Duff, adding that “The wettest March day on record at New York City’s Central Park is 4.25 inches back in 1876 on the 25th.”

Per a report by the NY Post, firefighters rescued a man and woman whose car “became submerged underneath an overpass on the westbound 65th Street Central Park Traverse.”
