Garden State storm cleanup continues

A week after a powerful nor'easter walloped the Garden State, residents continue to clean up the debris and damage.

Though power was fully restored and flooding cleared from Bound Brook basements, local businesses say it could be weeks before they open their doors again. Main Street remains closed to traffic due to flooding and damage, preventing customers from shopping.

President Barack Obama could approve a federal disaster declaration in the area, but there is no word yet on his decision.
