NJ begins to dry out after heavy rains, flooding

LITTLE FALLS - A storm that moved through the Garden State on Saturday has left many flood-prone areas underwater.

A flood warning remains in place in parts of Morris, Essex and Passaic counties until further notice.

The Passaic River is expected to crest overnight at 9.1 feet, which is more than 2 feet above flood stage.

Several homes in Pompton Lakes were evacuated Sunday due to the floodwaters and parts of Fairfield also experienced flooding.

Heavy rain, high tides and strong winds pushed water into the streets of Manasquan on Sunday.
