Canarsie drying out after extreme flooding

Canarsie residents are attempting to dry out after Sandy brought extreme flooding to their neighborhood.

Homeowners say many of their basements and garages are also flooded with several feet of water. They've begun to bail it out, but say the cleanup will take some time.
