Yesterday, severe weather and flash flooding hit New York City, leaving motorists stranded in water and subway stations submerged, even as Tropical Storm Elsa prepares to pound the region.

As shocking videos emerged showing New Yorkers wading through filthy waist-deep water to catch a train, Rep.¬†Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez¬†weighed in on¬†Twitter¬†to blame ‘fossil fuel execs’ and promote her Green New Deal as the solution to severe weather.¬†

The thunderstorms that brought large hail to parts of New Jersey and spurred flash flooding in Manhattan are unrelated to Elsa, which hit the DC area on Thursday night as it heads towards NYC.

But the severe weather gave New Yorkers a taste of what could be in store for them, with Elsa predicted to arrive there by Friday afternoon with tropical-force winds and heavy rain.
