Rain lashes East Coast

A flood warning remained in effect for northeastern North Carolina on Saturday as heavy rains left some businesses underwater and scores of roads closed.

Flooding in North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania and New England killed at least eight people, officials said.

Bertie County in North Carolina was the hardest hit with waters as high as stop signs in some areas.

Rescue shelters were set up and animals in a small zoo were taken to higher ground.
