Waterlogged communities in upstate New York were hit with more rain from a line of storms that also disrupted air and some road travel around New York City on Monday.

Flash flood watches were posted in much of the upstate region, and there were flood warnings along the Hudson, Mohawk and Susquehanna rivers.

Thunderstorms in the New York City area caused flight delays of up to three hours at local airports, with the longest delays at John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday afternoon. New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport reported delays of up to 90 minutes. Hundreds of flights were canceled across the country because of the weather.

The National Weather Service said the severe weather also caused minor flooding on highways and streets across the state.

Forecasters said showers and thunderstorms were expected to continue into Tuesday morning, with total amounts of one to three inches in most places and up to five inches possible in some spots.

On Monday afternoon, heavy rain and minor flooding were reported in the Southern Tier along the Pennsylvania border and in the lower Hudson Valley. The weather service issued a flash flood warning for parts of Madison, Oneida, Montgomery and Herkimer counties, where heavy rain was reported during late afternoon.

Those counties were hit by major flooding last week and were included in a request Monday from Gov. Andrew Cuomo for a federal disaster declaration covering 15 counties hit by flooding that destroyed roads and other infrastructure. The other counties are Broome, Chenango, Clinton, Essex, Delaware, Franklin, Otsego, Schoharie, St. Lawrence, Tioga, and Warren.

The search continued Monday for 87-year-old Ethel Healey, who has been missing since her mobile home was swept away by rising flood waters in the Mohawk Valley town of Fort Plain on Friday.
