PHOTOS: Life In Rain-Soaked Belmont Shore

Outside of my studio apartment, water fell onto the street. Sheets, buckets, cats & dogs; Belmont Shore residents had it all coming down on their heads & their streets.

Armed with my Canon 5D MII, boat shoes, and a trusty umbrella, I captured some of the intense flooding on 2nd St.
