Westgate is out of power, as well as Police Headquarters, areas of Lexington Avenue, Irene Court, Princeton Avenue and others.

Multiple trees have come down and have taken down wires along with them. Many wires are sparking as well.

Heavy flooding is also being reported. Carey Street, Squankum Road and South Lake Drive are covered in about a foot of water and many vehicles have gotten stuck.

Many basements have already flooded.

Chaveirim and LCSW are asking all to remain inside and avoid driving unless urgent, as they cannot be busy pulling vehicle out of deep waters.

Hatzolah and LFD have crews standing by at the garages in case of emergencies.
