    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has warned residents to be alert for heavy flooding overnight Wednesday - after being slammed last week for failing to alert the city ahead of deadly storm Ida.  The remnants of Hurricane Ida hit the city last Wednesday night, with 13 NYC residents dying in flash floods.
