February: Nor'easter triggers emergency snow response across the tristate

July: Summer storm floods NYC subway system, drivers rescued on Major Deegan Expressway

August: Remnants of Tropical Storm Henri flood neighborhoods in New Jersey

September: Remnants of Hurricane Ida hit the tristate and flood New York highways and already hard hit areas of New Jersey
