Many from Warren County return home to assess flood damage from Delaware River

With flood waters receding from the Delaware River, many people are returning home to assess the damage in Warren County.

Displaced residents in Harmony Township returned home to assess the water damage as officials pumped water out of flooded properties and made sure power lines were working. Many residents remain without electricity.

Still, about 1,000 people evacuated early Sunday in Mercer County were being housed Monday at a school and other shelters. More than 200 people evacuated in Hunterdon County and 150 people upriver in Warren County also remain evacuated from their homes.

Shelters in West Trenton and in Hunterdon County closed as people found alternate places to stay while displaced from their homes.
