SHIRLEY - A boxing gym in Suffolk County has been flooded out following a series of storms, including Tropical Storm Irene.

Atlantic Boxing in Shirley has gaping holes in its aging roof after days of heavy rainfall. Coach Mike Murphy says they've been putting up tarps and bailing out water since Tuesday morning.

Gym organizers say they're hoping for a miracle to get the club dried out after losing its county grant of $12,000 earlier this year.
