HUNTINGTON - Motorists in Huntington Village got a bit of a headache today after severe storms swept through the area, causing a flash flood on New York Avenue, just north of Huntington Village.

Residents say it's only a matter of time before the fire siren sounds and the volunteers come out to direct traffic and push out stranded cars driven by folks who thought they could make it through the flood-prone street.

Similar scenes were playing out in other parts of Long Island. Maple Avenue in Bay Shore was mostly underwater and rush hour traffic was temporarily snarled on Old Country Road in Mineola due to a power outage.
