WAYNE - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) has declared a state of emergency as the Garden State braces for more rain and flooding.

News 12 New Jersey was in Passaic County all day, watching the water of the Passaic River rise. Residents say they're worried that the 2-3 inches of rain that is expected will push water into the streets. Crews in Paterson were working to pump water away from flood zones, as traffic already backed up. Lt. Alex Popov says the levels have gotten better, but Thursday's downpour will likely make things worse all over the city.
