For example, NJ.com posted a photo Thursday morning showing the devastation caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida at the Yankees AA baseball stadium.
The building in Bridgewater, New Jersey, was completely submerged in water to the point that only the stands and the roof of the players’ shelters were visible. The stadium was completely hidden under brown water, while the parking lot outside the Somerset Patriots home filled with water.
