A storm barreled into the Northeastern U.S. on Monday, flooding roads and downing trees, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands, forcing flight cancellations and school closures, and killing at least four people. More than 5 inches of rain fell in parts of New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania by mid-morning, and parts of several other states got more than 4 inches according to the National Weather Service. Wind gusts reached nearly 70 mph along the southern New England shoreline. Power was knocked out for more than 700,000 customers in an area stretching from Virginia north through New England.
