When Tropical Storm Floyd struck, flooding out thousands of people, Lorraine Zdeb rushed to the aid of friends, neighbors and strangers and took in nearly 100 of their pets. "Animals were dying; people were calling me in tears, hysterical that they didn't want to abandon their pets, begging me to come get them," said Zdeb, a professional pet-sitter. "What could I do?

A professional pet sitter in Millstone, N.J., who allegedly broke the law by taking in nearly 100 animals left homeless during Tropical Storm Floyd is off the hook. Recognizing the "extraordinary circumstances" around the September flooding, Millstone officials agreed to drop a charge that Lorraine Zdeb violated a zoning ordinance, said the borough attorney, Stephen M. Offen. In return, she will not use her home and 5 1/2-acre property as a shelter again unless she gets permission, Offen said.

Officials estimated that Saturday's downpour, which dumped more than 14 inches of rain on the area around Sparta, caused hundreds of million of dollars in damage. "It was just water and trees and boulders coming everywhere," said Sparta resident Terry Preskar Earl.

A powerful Atlantic storm with winds of up to 70 m.p.h. pummeled resort towns in Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey on Saturday, forcing evacuations, damaging buildings and toppling utility lines. "It's a potentially very dangerous situation. The boardwalks are unsafe right now. There are power lines down. There is storm and sewer overflow," said Delaware Gov. Michael N. Castle, who toured the area.
