Deaths increase after Ida’s remnants hit the northeast

Hurricane Aida’s wreckage flooded a large strip of northeastern United States on Wednesday night with historic and unexpected anger, killing at least 14 people in floods in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The road has turned into a canal that swallows cars. Eight people were killed when trapped in a flooded basement, according to the New York Police Department. Five people were found dead in an apartment complex in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the mayor and spokesman told local media.
