Rain and thunderstorms delayed Tuesday’s commute.

Residents in flood-prone Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island were warned not to drive through flooded streets until 7:30 a.m.

Despite the storm’s movement to the east, some parts of eastern Queens and Long Island are still subject to the warning until 8:30 in the morning.

At one point, authorities in the tri-state area even mentioned the prospect of a tornado touching down, but by the time 5 a.m. rolled around, the danger was no longer present.

The storm that swept in and pummeled New York City with thunder roused a good number of people before morning.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) redirected the A train while technicians removed water from the C, L, and R tracks.

Flooding closed the Clearview Expressway in Queens and part of the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn. Both roads reopened around 6:40 am, although delays remained.

According to the energy provider Con Edison, many thousand clients in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens are now without power.
