EGG HARBOR CITY, N.J. (AP) - A rain storm that blew across the northeast over the weekend continues to cause problems, giving commuters headaches and forcing some schools to close.

At least nine people died in storm-related accidents over the weekend, and nearly half a million customers were without electricity in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut at the peak.

It's still raining hard in Massachusetts, where low-lying roads and basements are flooded. Workers had to throw up sand bags around the entrance to a subway station near Boston's Fenway Park to keep the station from flooding.

Power line crews are continuing to restore power.

Schools are closed in Connecticut, Massachusetts and on New York's Long Island.
