Floods hit eastern U.S.

Tropical Storm Lee's gone but heavy rains in its wake have brought yet more devastation to the eastern United States. Some 130, 000 people have been evacuated in Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland. Homes and businesses have been swamped all the way up to New England. At least three people died in Pennsylvania because of the flooding. Rivers and creeks have already been swollen by Hurricane Irene which caused flooding in late August. Now they're under even more pressure after torrential rain from a weather system that soaked the U.S. Gulf Coast and put New Orleans' flood defences to the test. Paul Chapman, Reuters
