The Northeast could be in for some very dangerous flooding today and the wettest March on record in some places.
The rain on the East Coast is part of the second major storm in less than a month and the National Weather Service warned commuters to be prepared to travel alternate routes. Forecasters say flooding could wash out roads. Flood warnings and advisories have been issued from Maine to the Carolinas. As much as 5 to 7 inches of rain is expected in some places.
The Northeast is still recovering from a storm in mid-March that dropped as much as much as 10 inches of rain.
In Rhode Island, meteorologists warned of a possible "life-threatening" situation along the Pawtuxet River, with heavy flooding by this afternoon that could be as severe as or worse than the mid-March storm.
