Sunday’s storms flooded roads and knocked down trees in parts of the region.

Earlier Sunday, the Yankees-Red Sox game was delayed during the sixth inning as heavy rain began to fall. The game resumed to finish the sixth inning after 37 minutes, only to be delayed again as the downpours resumed.

A tree came down and crushed a house in New City in Rockland County, going right into a second floor bedroom. No one was hurt.

133 West Clarkstown Road was groaning and creaking Monday under the weight of the mighty oak and a crane was brought in to lift the tree off.

The trunk was split open and the tree sliced through the roof. It is no longer safe to occupy.

Tuesday and Wednesday will see highs in the low to mid 70s and sunshine. By next weekend, things are forecast to warm back into the upper 70s.
