HOBOKEN - Flooding returned to parts of Hoboken today, stranding drivers and their cars.

More than an inch of rain fell in the city, producing two feet of standing water in some areas. One tow truck driver said at least 22 flooded out cars were towed out Wednesday.

The weather brought back memories from Sandy more than six months ago. Some homeowners and business still struggling to make repairs from Sandy found themselves cleaning out again.

Hoboken residents tell News 12 New Jersey that they are forced to deal with flooded streets and homes two to three times a year. Residents there are looking to local government for answers. Mayor Dawn Zimmer says city water pumps were working but were unable to keep up with the water

The mayor's office says it continues to submit grant applications for funding to install three more flood pumps to the west end of the city.
