Storm Causes Flooding, Power Outages

posted by Terry Trahim -

A powerful storm that moved through the tri-state area on Sunday has left behind flooding problems and power outages.

More than 30,000 people were without power on Long Island on Monday morning.  The storm is also causing transit problems, as downed power lines caused the Ronkonkoma and Montauk branches on the Long Island Rail Road to suspend service.

The storm also caused service to be suspended on Metro North's Danbury line.

Upwards of four inches of rain fell on the tri-state area, blinding drivers who tried to make their way through the storm on Sunday.  Flooding remains a concern on Monday morning, although the waters are receding.

Rain will move away from the tri-state area on Monday.  However, there could still be strong wind gusts of more than 40 miles per hour.
