Storm damage: Bronx River Parkway reopens in White Plains, thousands without power

Overnight storms have caused major problems on Hudson Valley's roadways and has knocked out power to thousands of homes.
The heavy rains made it difficult  to see and caused some dicey conditions on the roads this morning. Roadways and side streets were littered with leaves making for slippery conditions.
A tree came down along the southbound side of I-684 in Harrison blocking the right lane, and it was so dark, drivers couldn't see the tree until they came right up to it.
The Bronx River Parkway was shut down in both directions at Main Street in White Plains due to flooding for most of the early morning hours. Southbound traffic was diverted onto Route 119 by the County Center. DPW crews had to wait until the rain tapered off before they could work on the drains along the parkway to bring down the flooding. They were able to let traffic through by 8 a.m.
