TETERBORO - A brand-new, not yet opened juvenile detention center in Teterboro is serving as a temporary shelter tonight for hundreds who have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

Hundreds of Moonachie and Little Ferry residents had to be evacuated by boat after a levee along the Hackensack River broke, sending several feet of water into the towns.

The area typically does not see much flooding.
