BRONXVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - Heavy rain overnight temporarily flooded some highways in and around New York City, but authorities say they have reopened.

Police in suburban Westchester County say flooding caused problems on a roughly eight-mile stretch of the Bronx River Parkway early Sunday morning. They say a section of the highway between the Sprain Brook Parkway in Bronxville and the county government center in White Plains was closed for a time.

Police say it reopened by about 8 a.m.

New York City emergency management officials said flooding forced the closure of the westbound Belt Parkway at Farmers Boulevard in Queens from about 5:20 a.m. to 6:10 a.m.

On Long Island, some local roads in Suffolk County were still swamped with large puddles Sunday morning.
