Weeks after Hurricane Irene's departure, heavy rain continues to fall from Maryland to New England for the second week in a row.
The ever-wet situation has Northeast residents praying for relief.
"Please Lord, stop the rain!" pleaded Sherry Hatz, who was forced to evacuate her home in Pennsylvania's Dover Township.
"We thought this would have happened during the hurricane. Nope," Barry Gohn, another local resident said.
Before cleanup from Irene could begin, the hardest hit areas were being told to brace for more, this time from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee.
"With the forecasted additional rainfall, we don't anticipate we're going to be able to catch up any time soon," West Manchester Township, Pa. Fire Chief David Nichols said.
Pennsylvania officials have ordered a mandatory evacuation of 100,000 residents living along the Susquehanna River.
"Well, I lived here all my life, 56 years now and it's the worst I've ever seen," one Pennsylvania man said. "I went through the '72 flood and this actually is probably going to end up beating that."
The National Weather Service has also issued flash flood warnings for New York and New Jersey.
One group of Paterson, N.J. residents who just returned to their homes say they just want to cleanup as much as possible before the next round of rain.
"Another flood could possibly come and the same thing could happen," Paterson resident Connell Kelly acknowledged. "But right now I'm just taking precautions cleaning out and going through the repetition, same old thing.
Emergency officials say that it's best for residents to evacuate as soon as possible. They warn that they will not be able to reach people who ignore evacuation orders.
