Hundreds of people in the Northeast have evacuated their homes after more than a day and a-half of drenching rain washed out roads and flooded homes in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

At least three deaths are being blamed on the storm.

In Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a person died after a car struck a guardrail and flipped into a creek, trapping the driver. A wreck in New Jersey killed a two-year-old boy.

Pennsylvania authorities rescued two boys from an Allentown creek after their inflatable raft overturned. Also, a family was rescued from an apartment when a retaining wall collapsed. Another six were evacuated from a mobile home park.

And eight-foot-high flood waters from the Ramapo River led to the evacuation of about 30 residents in Bergen County, New Jersey.
