Army and Navy Sent to NYC to Assist With Flood

By October 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says President Obama is sending crews and equipment from the Army and Navy to help pump out New York City's swamped subway tunnels, according to an Army Times article.

He says an elite Army "de-watering" team that had been deployed during Hurricane Katrina is being sent from Illinois. That team should be pumping out large amounts of seawater by Thursday morning.
