Nor'easter dumps heavy rainfall across WC, HV
Westchester and Hudson Valley residents waded through water Sunday as a nor'easter dumped several inches of rain and gusty winds.
Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D-NY) has 3,200 National Guard members on standby. Police officers, fire fighters and Con Ed crews are working in teams under a unified command to handle emergencies.
Several roads and parkways were closed due to flooding. Officials urged motorists to take public transportation and to be cautious if they must drive. Meanwhile, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said more than 300 flights were canceled at John F. Kennedy Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.
The rainfall is part of a storm system that blew across the Gulf Coast Friday and Saturday.
