National Guard assisting flood rescue efforts

TEANECK - The New Jersey National Guard is out assisting in rescue efforts across northern New Jersey after floodwaters submerged many towns.

Paterson Mayor Jeffery Jones is asking residents to evacuate the low-lying areas, saying that if people don't leave voluntarily, they may take the next step and forcibly remove residents who are in danger areas.

While many are fed up, the National Weather Service says it expects the flooded rivers to recede within a few hours through Monday.
