Florence remnants soak Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:
MARINE PARK -

The remnants of what was previously Hurricane Florence moved up the East Coast and soaked Brooklyn on Tuesday.

In Marine Park, there were some flooded parking lots, slick streets and plenty of puddles around which pedestrians had to navigate.

But the rain wasn't all bad for everyone. Karisma Alce, a bartender at Nick's Lobster House, said the rain helped bring in customers. The manager credited the influx of customers on the restaurant's large parking lot and location just off a main road.

The rest of the week should see some sunshine starting Wednesday.

Water pouring into Penn Station caused some subway service changes Tuesday afternoon.

The MTA has since tweeted that normal service had resumed.

Florence devastated parts of North and South Carolina, causing widespread flooding in some areas and being blamed for dozens of deaths.
