Northeast braces for possible flooding after powerful storms kill 5 people


(CNN) Storms that ravaged parts of the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic -- and claimed at least five lives -- have passed, but the risk of flooding continues Wednesday. Several thousands of customers were left without power on Tuesday as nickel- to golf ball-sized hail and a possible tornado were reported from southern Massachusetts through Pennsylvania and into parts of Virginia. The storms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes appear to be over for now. But more rain is expected to fall in the comings days into already saturated soils and cause more flooding. On Wednesday, much of the East Coast from North Georgia up through Pennsylvania and New Jersey will see rain in the next three days, Guy said.
