Smith Pond overflow hits Merrick, Bellmore
The torrential rains that hit Long Island yesterday caused Smith Pond in Woodbury to overflow, filling backyards and basements with water in Merrick and Bellmore.
The flooding was so heavy, a town worker trying to clean a storm drain was swept away and had to be rescued by co-workers.
The Nassau County Public Works Department says the woman is now doing fine. Weather Center Watch News 12 Watch Traffic and Weather Submit Photos/Video
