Within a few hours several stations were flooded with over a meter of water on the tracks. After months or years of no electricity (and no regular maintenance of the tunnels) I think the subways would be quite deadly, dark and dangerous underground rivers/lakes.
very inspiring...thax for that one...

but I guess it rains alot more in dc/ny than LA ?
