ELMER, N.J. — Parts of the Northeast are facing more wet weather a day after heavy downpours flooded a hospital, closed roads and dumped record levels of rain in some areas.

As much as 11 inches of rain fell over parts of New Jersey on Sunday, washing away some roads.

In New York City, two construction workers were rescued Sunday from a basement elevator that was flooding with what appeared to be sewer water. Officials say when firefighters arrived, the water was up to the men's necks.

Nearly 8 inches of rain fell at John F. Kennedy International Airport Sunday, the most ever recorded there in a single day.

In northern Ohio, a hospital closed because water was getting into a room holding power distribution panels. The Sandusky Register reports patients were transferred.
