Pray for flooded Northeast!

Please pray for the Northeast USA (my Homeland) which is undergoing torrential rain and flooding.

Rain Still Threatening Flooding, Records in NortheastMar 30, 2010; 4:47 PM ETShare |

(AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)The weather will gradually improve from southwest-to-northeast along the Northeast's I-95 corridor tonight into Wednesday as the storm that's been inundating the region since Monday starts to move away. Before the rain ends, however, more rainfall records will fall, while additional flooding ensues.

Rivers across the region will remain in flood stage for days despite a return of dry weather at the end of the week. The Pawtuxet River at Cranston, R.I., southwest of Providence, has actually risen past record flood stage. Numerous homes have taken on floodwaters, and more could be threatened over the next few days. Road closures due to flooding will continue to be a problem as well.

There have been numerous reports of flooded roadways and road closures around the New York City area and southern Connecticut. Flight delays were averaging 1 to 2 hours in Philadelphia, Boston and New York City's JFK and La Guardia Airports through Tuesday afternoon.

Rainfall totals since Monday have reached 2 to 4 inches across a large area from eastern North Carolina to Maine. Around a dozen daily rainfall records were broken across this region Monday. In the zone of the heaviest rain, which targeted southern New England through early Tuesday afternoon, rainfall totals have reached up to 5 to 7 inches.

Boston, Mass., and Providence, R.I., have both received more than enough rain to make this month the wettest March on record. As of 4 p.m. EDT this afternoon, monthly totals had reached 14.23 inches in Boston and 15.84 inches in Providence.

Meanwhile, 4.34 inches of rain in New York City's Central Park through 7 p.m. this evening has brought this month's rainfall total to 10.59 inches. This makes this month the wettest March on record for the city.

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
-- Gustave Flaubert

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Oh. New England. When I first read this, I thought the Mississippi had flooded again.

Lord have mercy.
