In video taken from an overpass on Route 46 in Little Falls, located about 20 miles west of New York City, several cars can be seen floating away down the Peckman River in Passaic County from the parking lot of a dealership.
The vehicles eventually knock into each other and pile up as drivers stranded on the highway react.
“Showers & thunderstorms producing heavy rain will move across the area causing urban and small stream flooding,” the NWS said. “Overflowing poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding in the advisory area.”
The area saw between 3 inches and 4 inches of rain by the time the storms moved out, according to the NWS.
