LINCOLN PARK - As the temperatures rose today, it was the first opportunity that many in the area had to clean up floodwater left behind.

News 12 New Jersey visited some of the areas hard hit by flooding, including Lincoln Park. Ramanuj Prasand says he actually missed all of the flooding that drowned his Little Falls home, but after returning from his trip to India, he now has to deal with the damage the floods left behind. Public work crews as well as private contractors were making extra efforts today to clean up, but it was producing a lot of garbage.
