News 12's Sean McCabe was out in Stratford, where leftover floodwater could be seen by the seawall on Beach Drive. Neighbors told News 12 that water was knee-deep at the height of the storm and that it extended all the way to the nearby intersection. A few streets away, Oak Bluff Drive was still completely underwater this afternoon near Long Beach Park.
