LIVE: Heavy Thunderstorms Bringing Flood Threat to NYC

Heavy and gusty thunderstorms are threatening to cause damage and flooding across parts of the mid-Atlantic and into far southern New England, including the New York City area.

A widespread outbreak of violent thunderstorms is not unfolding, but a handful of strong thunderstorms are creating issues to close out Sunday.
