NEW YORK (AP)—Police say severe flooding that had stranded some motorists on a number of suburban New York roadways has receded.
Nassau County police say that as of 4 a.m. Monday, no motorists were stuck in their vehicles. Police had received at least a dozen emergency calls involving cars stuck on inundated roads Sunday night.
A section of the Long Island Expressway was closed due to flooding but was reopened at around 12:30 a.m. Monday.
Nassau County police responded to heavy flooding in seven areas.
There also were scattered outages across Long Island.
Flooding also was reported in parts of Rockland County. In Nyack, flooding clogged storm drains with debris and dumped muddy water into building basements along a three block-stretch.
