Melting snow triggers Long Island flooding

SHOREHAM, N.Y. (WABC) -- Melting snow triggered some major flooding on Long Island and officials say this may just be the beginning.

Officials say a frozen field melted quickly in Wednesday's warm weather, sending run-off onto a neighborhood in Shoreham.

The water flooded several homes, doing severe damage to one building.
Emergency crews helped residents pump out their houses and dug a trench to divert the water out onto the street.

Officials say they expect more flooding as rising temperatures melt the winter's large snow pack.
