WANTAGH, N.Y. (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Long Island.

It’s in effect until 10 p.m. Friday in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Low-lying areas and places with poor drainage would likely receive the worst of any flooding.

Meteorologist Joe Pollina tells Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/1lZRAor ) that the heaviest rain is expected around eastern Long Island.

There’s also a high risk of rip currents as Hurricane Arthur passes well south and east of the area.

Pollina says any swimming should be done near lifeguards.
