New York town gets entire summer's worth of rain story image

DEER PARK, N.Y. (AP) - A storm has slammed a suburban New York area with over 13 inches of rain - an entire summer's worth - and trapped drivers on flooded roads around Long Island.

The staggering total was recorded Wednesday at an airport in the hamlet of Ronkonkoma (rahn-KAHN'-kuh-muh) in the town of Islip (EYE'-slihp). Joe Pollina of the National Weather Service says the area's normal total for June, July and August is 11.75 inches.

The Southern State Parkway was closed around Baldwin and about 20 miles east in Deer Park, where cars were stuck in a couple of feet of water.

WPIX says fire crews in boats rescued drivers in Nesconset.

Central and eastern Long Island roads that were still open had bumper-to-bumper traffic Wednesday.

The rain started around 6 p.m. Tuesday. It tapered off Wednesday morning.
