Area around Franklin Park Morrisseyed: Roads flooded, Orange Line shut; rest of city also soggy

The Boston area remains under a flood warning until 1 p.m. as Ida moves out.

Franklin Park and the areas around it seemed to get particularly hard hit by the overnight torrents: Flooding shut Morton Street from Forest Hills Cemetery to West Main Street and roads in the area of Blue Hill Avenue and Columbia Road, including in Franklin Park.

The T had to run buses between Jackson Square and Ruggles due to flooded tracks. No bus shuttles; the T says take the 22. The flooding also disrupted commuter-train lines that pass through Ruggles.

The National Weather Service reported 4.75 inches of rain in Jamaica Plain - the highest recorded in Suffolk County. Dorchester checked in with 4.22 inches, Brighton with 4, Hyde Park with 3.56.

But on the whole, nothing like New York.

One hopes not, otherwise we'll be up to our ancestors in baby wheels.

NJ and NYC got over 3 inches of rain in one hour yesterday evening, a couple of building collapses, several deaths. My son couldn't get to work today because of flooding.
