Storm Damage May Snarl Northeast Commute

EGG HARBOR CITY, N.J. (AP) - The damage and flooding left in the wake of a torrential rainstorm in the Northeast could keep some people from their homes for days and cause headaches for the morning commute.

The Long Island Railroad says flooding near an East River tunnel
could delay or cancel trains and advised commuters to give
themselves extra time.

Dozens of roads in New York are blocked by fallen limbs and wires. And in Boston, the transit authority shut down stretches of
the Green and Red rail lines because of rising water.

In the New York-New Jersey area, airlines reported delays and
scattered cancellations.

At least seven people died in storm-related accidents over the weekend, and nearly half a million people were without electricity
in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut at the peak of the storm.
