Newark still recovering from Irene

Newark is coping with power outages and an extensive cleanup after Hurricane Irene caused flooding and brought down trees.

City crews are working to clear fallen trees in order to make them passable. A home video shows a fish from Weequahic Park lake swimming at a man's doorstep. Newark Mayor Cory Booker told News 12 New Jersey that the city is still reeling from the effects of Irene while at the city's emergency operations center.
