POMPTON LAKES - Federal Emergency Management Agency officials are starting to assess the damage in the areas hardest hit by the recent flooding in northern New Jersey.

FEMA inspectors, along with state Office of Emergency Management personnel, are working together to determine the impact of the floods in Bergen, Essex, Morris, Sussex, and Passaic counties.

Teams have to see damage firsthand and compile information for the governor to submit an application for federal aid.

The Passaic River at Pine Brook and Little Falls continues to recede and officials say it might drop below flood stage tomorrow.

Some roads remain closed in the flood zone and several dozen residents in Paterson and Little Falls are waiting to learn when they could return to their homes.
