Wet weather hits the Bronx

MORRIS HEIGHTS -

Severe weather struck the Bronx Monday evening, causing widespread flooding.

Morris Heights residents and business owners faced the soggy weather during the evening commute.

Many who set up shop on sidewalks closed down, while others improvised by hanging tarps and using umbrellas to keep products dry.

Some avoided the rain by ducking into bus stops, and others took refuge in bodegas.
