Heavy rain and strong wind continue to hit the borough during Monday morning's commute.

Key areas that are prone to flooding along the Belt Parkway are between Flatbush Avenue and Knapp Street.

The far left and right lanes both tend to flood in stormy weather.

Drivers should leave extra time for the morning commute.

Showers should taper off by mid-morning with decreasing clouds into the afternoon.
