BROOKLYN - Wednesday?s winter storm may be over, but not before the snow, rain and ice caused many problems for Brooklyn drivers.

Traffic is back to normal, but many drivers found themselves with flat tires and bent rims on the westbound Belt Parkway Wednesday night. The Department of Transportation had workers filling in gaping potholes until early Thursday morning.

The storm also took its toll in Brownsville where Con Edison says two manhole fires were caused by melting ice and snow that got into their system.
