    The remnants of Hurricane Ida barreled into the New York City region on Wednesday evening with furious, wind-driven rain that flooded subway lines, splintered homes in New Jersey, raised a tornado warning for the Bronx, and delayed the U.S. Open in Queens when the rain came into the roofed stadium sideways.

    The National Weather Service said it had recorded rainfall rates of at least three to five inches in an hour across northeast New Jersey and parts of New York City, which was under a flash flood emergency for the first time. At Newark Airport, 3.24 inches of rain were recorded between 8 and 9 p.m., the Weather Service said. Between 8:51 and 9:51 p.m., Central Park recorded 3.15 inches of rain.

    Heavy rains delayed some train lines in Manhattan as crews worked to drain water, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said. Around 9 p.m., the Weather Service issued a tornado warning for parts of the Bronx, after a radar indicated a tornado had formed in the area.

    At times, strong wind gusts blew the rain sideways, enough to temporarily delay a U.S. Open match at Louis Armstrong Stadium on Wednesday night, as rain made its way into the stadium in spite of its roof.

    The storm system, advancing on a path to southern New England, brought drenching rain that could lead to life-threatening flooding, meteorologists said.
