WAYNE - Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) met today with homeowners in the towns of Pequannock, Pompton Lakes and Little Falls that were hit hard by the storm.

Homeowners say flooding has become all too frequent. Christie says he understands their frustrations, but says there are no easy solutions.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) sent a letter to President Barack Obama, urging quick action on federal disaster relief. However, the request for disaster relief needs to be made by the governor. Christie says his administration will get to it as soon as it has a complete evaluation of the damage.

"There is certain criteria that we have to meet, county by county, in order to qualify for this relief," the governor said.
