WAYNE, N.J. (AP) - The three-day storm that smacked the northeast has moved on, leaving communities to deal with flooding, power outages and a big clean-up job.

While floodwaters have receded in some places, many areas are still inundated. Tens of thousands of people remain without electricity, and hundreds are still in emergency shelters.

Flooding has closed more than 100 roads in southeastern New Hampshire.

About 44,000 New Jersey customers were still without power as of midday today. In Connecticut, nearly 41,000 homes and businesses were in the dark, down from a peak of more than 85,000, and nearly 93,000 were without power in New York City and its suburbs to the north and the east.

Along the New Jersey shore, pounding waves from the storm wrecked a bayfront memorial to the 37 Middletown residents who were killed in the 9/11 attacks.

At least 11 deaths have been linked to the storm.
