Pompton Lakes still feeling effects of nor'easter

Some Pompton Lakes residents are still waiting to move back to their homes after a nor'easter.

Flood waters washed away part of the foundation of Iggy Mongelli's house and cracked the rest of the foundation. Mongelli says that he and his wife live in one place and their son lives somewhere else.

Mongelli blames the new gates of the Pompton Lakes Dam for the damage. He says that the town has had 7 floods in the past 9 years.

The gates were put in by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
