Storm Henri expected to bring more heavy rain to parts of Northeast
Storm Henri dumped heavy rain across the Northeastern U.S. on Sunday, causing considerable flash, urban and other minor flooding over the Tri-State Area and New England.
The latest: The storm is expected to continue to drench the region through Monday night. More than 60,000 customers throughout the Northeast were without power as of Monday morning, according to Poweroutage.us.
- Parts of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire remain under flood and flash flood watches through Monday.
The big picture: Henri weakened to a depression Sunday night, after making landfall in Rhode Island as a tropical storm, knocking out power to over 100,000 homes, causing flight cancellations and bringing record rainfall to New York City.
- Airports remained open after Henri made landfall on Sunday afternoon, but more than 1,000 flights in or out of or within the U.S. were canceled, per the flight-tracking website FlightAware.
- There were reports of widespread road flooding across New York City and New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service.
What they're saying: President Biden said Sunday that the government had mobilized resources to help the afflicted areas, in addition to him already approving emergency declarations for Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.
- "This storm has the potential for widespread consequences across the region," Biden said.
