WAYNE - The grassy area alongside the Newark-Pompton Turnpike and the entrance ramp to Route 23 in Wayne has been home to a township resident for more than two weeks.

Ricky Harris, his family and a neighbor parked their mobile homes on this patch of grass as floodwater after Hurricane Irene rose inside their nearby homes.

Harris says although police have not asked them to move, he doesn't know how much longer he'll be calling this traffic island home.

Harris says he's been getting his mail and emergency supplies delivered to his makeshift residence.
