ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Fast-moving Tropical Storm Elsa hit the New York City region with torrential rains and high winds as it churned up the East Coast.

Maximum sustained winds from the storm were near 50 mph (85 kph) as it moved through New York City and Long Island Friday morning. Heavy rains were causing potential traffic hazards in New York City and nearby suburbs, which were already reeling from a deluge Thursday that flooded roads and at least one subway station.

The National Hurricane Center said a tornado or two was possible through early afternoon Friday over parts of Long Island and southeastern New England.
