The heavy rain caused a landslide in Sea Cliff, sending one homeowner's backyard into the Long Island Sound. 
The home on Bay Avenue and 16th Avenue was evacuated, but there were no injuries reported. 
Much of the driveway and backyard of the house came tumbling down with the bluff into the Sound at around 7 a.m.. 
The homeowner had recently spent $150,000 to build a new retaining wall. 
Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy says that officials are checking other houses to make sure that nobody else on the hillside is at risk.
