To deal with all the flooding in New York, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Rock Island district is sending in the experts.
"Unwatering" experts to be exact.
The team was specially trained for helping New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They will help the Corps' New York district get all the water out of the subway systems and other low lying areas.
"We expect it to be a challenging engineering problem," says Roger Less of the Army Corps of Engineers. "It's an intricate system of infrastructure they have there to support that population and getting that all storm surge back out and up and running again will take some time and will take some engineering talent and a lot of will power."
The unwatering team hopes to be finished and back home by Thanksgiving.
