What'd we do to deserve a Friday news and weather dump? According to forecasts, the thunderstorm that dropped heavy rain throughout the city earlier this morning will be returning with a vengeance this afternoon (and then probably leaving us alone for the remainder of the weekend).

As such, the city is under a "flood advisory" until 11 p.m., and the National Weather Service is warning of a "hazardous weather outlook" caused by the one-two punch of damaging winds and flash flooding. Already, the storm has caused major flooding in parts of the regions, along with some indoor subway showers.

Queens has been hit hard, with heavy flooding seen in the coastal neighborhood of College Point and other parts of the borough.

And, as is its wont, the Gowanus Canal also spilled over its toxic water into the surrounding streets.

Elsewhere in the Tri-State area, the storm is wreaking havoc on several New Jersey towns, and it appears that entire blocks of Hackensack have turned to rivers.

And in South Brunswick, a car skidded off Route 1 into a retention pond, leading to a dramatic rescue from a nearby witness.

The storm returns to the city around 4 p.m. Happy commuting!
