Governor Andrew Cuomo has activated the state’s Emergency Operations Center ahead of today's severe storms.

A flood advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) as a result of the morning’s heavy rains.

Rain was falling at rates up to an inch per hour, flooding roadways, underpasses and low-lying areas.

A special weather statement was also issued by the agency due to the thunderstorms in the area.

The NWS reminded residents that if you can hear thunder you are close enough to be struck by lightning and should remain indoors if possible.
