NEW YORK (AP) — New York City area commuters faced a chaotic morning as they slogged to work in a deluge.

Numerous subway lines had lengthy delays as flooding and signal problems mounted.

Water pooled inside some Long Island Rail Road cars.

Police closed northbound lanes on the Henry Hudson Parkway due to flooding.

On Long Island, WABC says a man was struck by lightning in Bay Shore. Police say he was alert and talking when emergency services arrived.
