New York City’s notoriously troubled subway system fell victim to unexpected flooding and waterfalls inside subway stations on Monday, as New York weather brought heavy rain and flash flood warnings.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for New York City through 2:15 p.m. Monday, and maintained a flood advisory after that. Many commuters witnessed the New York City subway flooding first hand.

“As happens during heavy storms like today’s, water is entering some stations from the street. We’re sending emergency maintenance teams and customer service staff to locations where they’re needed,” New York City Transit tweeted about the subway flooding on Monday morning. “We’ll keep staircases and other station areas open as long as it’s safe to do so, but please be careful as you enter and exit trains.”
