Ophelia’s remnants to bring heavy rain, coastal flooding to Northeast again

Heavy rain and coastal flooding have been a problem in the Northeast for several days thanks to Tropical Storm Ophelia. What’s left of the storm is set to bring soggy and blustery weather to the region once again. The worst of the weather is expected to start late Thursday in places such as New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The coming Supermoon could also enhance the coastal flooding that's expected. Coastal flood alerts now stretch more than 1,200 miles along the East Coast from Miami to the New York City tri-state area.
