True, although stormsurge was responsible for most flooding. Industrial areas like that are often in low-lying areas. I had prepared for flooding, e.g., sandbagging. We got wind, but very little rain. Lost a 100-yr-old apple tree and had the top 30 ft of a neighbor's 60 ft maple fly over my driveway. I'm to the north of NYC, though; NJ, to the south, got considerably more rain.
