The death toll from the remnants of Hurricane Ida’s stunning blast through the Northeast rose to at least 18 Thursday after a wide swath of the region became overwhelmed by fierce downpours and localized flooding.

At least nine people died in the city, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. Five deaths were reported in New Jersey, three in Pennsylvania and one in Maryland.

The downpours turned this city’s streets into rivers and swamped basement and first-floor apartments. The National Weather Service office in New York declared a flash flooding emergency, a rare warning for situations where the flooding is “leading to a severe threat to human life and catastrophic damage.”
