Heavy rains impact areas prone to flooding

MAMARONECK -

A coastal flood warning was issued for Mamaroneck Monday evening through Tuesday morning.

Residents and officials say they want President Trump to sign a $70 million flood mitigation project that has already been passed by Congress in October.

The project would allot federal money to build reinforcement walls along the Mamaroneck and Sheldrake rivers to prevent floods like the flood of 2007 that destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses.

Officials say anyone that sees flooding in their home tonight should turn off the electricity.
