2005: Heavy rainfall in the Northeast produced flooding in parts of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Severe flooding along the Delaware River forced the evacuation of 6,000 residents in New Jersey and over 5,700 in Pennsylvania during the weekend of the 2nd-3rd. Around 3,200 homes in New Jersey were damaged, while one fatality was reported in New York.

the March 14 accident that killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. If convicted, Stallworth would face as many as 15 years in prison. Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level after the crash was .126, well above Florida’s legal limit of .08, according to results of a blood test. Stallworth will also be charged with DUI, which carries a possi-

ble six-month sentence plus fines and community service for first offenders. “Whenever a deadly accident occurs and a driver is impaired, families suffer,” said Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle in a statement. “I can only repeat this message over and over: if you are going to drink, don’t drive.”

Broncos say they want to deal QB Cutler The Associated Press ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Josh McDaniels and Jay Cutler seemed like a perfect fit — the rocket-armed passer meets the offensive guru who turned Matt Cassel from a career backup into one of the league’s top quarterbacks. Instead, McDaniels begins his coaching regime with the Denver Broncos by chasing

off his franchise quarterback before he even saw Cutler throw a single pass. Team owner Pat Bowlen announced this week he will allow his new brain trust of McDaniels, 32, and general manager Brian Xanders, 37, to “begin discussions with other teams in an effort to accommodate his request to be traded.” The Broncos insist they

tried to call a truce, but Cutler wouldn’t pick up his phone. Just like that, a Pro Bowl quarterback was on the market. As has been the case, Xanders and McDaniels declined comment Wednesday through a team spokesman. The players, who are going through offseason conditioning drills, weren’t made available, either.
