Hudson Valley roads and rails have seen marked improvement since the damage caused by Sunday's storms.
Metro-North has its trains running on normal schedule, and manyof the roads that closed due to flooding have reopened. 
U.S. Route 6/202 (Bear Mountain Bridge Road) has reopened in both directions between State Route 9D and U.S. Route 9 in the Town of Cortlandt. 
Unfortunately, motorists will not be able to cross the Bear Mountain Bridge into Rockland County.            
In Orange County, U.S. Route 9W will reopen in both directions with reduced lanes in the areas between Cornwall and the Stony Lonesome Gate entrance to West Point/Mountain Ave. This is important because it's 4.8 miles of roadway including the major entrance into West Point from the north, restoring the main commuter route.            
Also in Orange County, State Route 32 at Trout Brook Road in Woodbury will reopen with one lane of alternating traffic via a temporary signal.
Meanwhile, there's help for people who suffered damage from the storm.
Officials from the New York state Department of Financial Services will be at the RHO Building in Stony Point from 12-5 p.m. today and tomorrow from 12-8 p.m. at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Covenant School in Highland Falls to help residents and business owners with insurance related questions.
There is also a food drive taking place in Highland Falls.  Pickup points are at the American Legion Hall, Sacred Heart Church and Sacred Heart School. The Red Cross has also set up a shelter at the school.
