The worst flooding in 70 years in Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire forced thousands of people from their homes on Monday after the heaviest rainfall in a decade.
Residents waded through waist-high water on washed out roads, some paddling to swamped homes in canoes, and meteorologists predicted more rain on Tuesday in all three New England states, which have declared states of emergency.
