SEAFORD - While most of the floodwaters from yesterday's storm have receded, Long Islanders in low-lying communities are now dealing with the damage.

Alex Jacobson says five of his horses had to be rescued from floodwaters at a camp in Merrick, where he says the water was up to their chest.

It took more than two hours to bring them all to safety, but they are now fine.

Others are still suffering from the record-setting rainfall, pumping out water from their homes for more than 24 hours.
