According to https://www.weather.gov/ Henri spared NYC but caused record rainfall as a massive downpour fell on Central Park.
Live from New York, it was Saturday Night as Tropical Storm Henri drenched NYC with 4.45 inches of rain, that appeared like an amazing omen when, exactly one minute before the start of “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert,” the sun blared through what had been a thoroughly overcast day.
However, it was not meant to be as rainfall records were broken from the 1888 record of 4.19 inches for that day. During the hour from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., the park was inundated with 1.94 inches of rain, making it “the wettest hour on record for New York City,” #NWS “More rain fell in that one hour than any other since record-keeping began,”
The hurricane forced organizers to cancel a massive Central Park concert while Barry Manilow was singing Copa Cabana, the hottest spot aside from Havana...etc.
States of emergency for New York and Connecticut, including the NYC, remain in effect amid the devastating rain, while torrential downpours are stranding drivers in floodwaters in multiple states. Isolated maximum rainfalls are possible in the affected areas.
