BROOKLYN - Dreary, wet weather hit Brooklyn Friday, forcing residents to brave the elements and run for cover.

The precipitation caused some flooding near Surf and Stillwell avenues in Coney Island.

Residents had to avoid the flooded areas by walking on wooden planks.

The boardwalk looked like a ghost town during the storm, with barely any people around and many stores closed.
