Irene Makes NYC Landfall With Rain, Flooding Play

Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The streets of lower and midtown Manhattan were deserted as Irene weakened to a tropical storm and made landfall in New York City with winds of 65 miles (105 kilometers) an hour after knocking out power on Long Island and causing flooding in New Jersey. The storm is packing as much as 15 inches of rain, hitting near the time when tides are high across much of the region, according to the National Weather Service. (Source: Bloomberg)
