Cleanup efforts underway in southern NJ after flooding, storms
The cleanup continues after severe storms and rain led Gov. Phil Murphy to declare a state of emergency in southern New Jersey.
Flooding in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties shut down roadways, with some residents having to evacuate by boat.
Southampton residents along Rancocas Creek may have to wait days or weeks before they can get back in their homes, as many homes remain under 4 to 5 feet of water.
Homeowners say they're no strangers to dealing with these conditions, as it took them nearly a year to rebuild after Hurricane Irene in 2011.
The Red Cross is sending case workers out this weekend to provide emergency assistance. In Gloucester and Camden counties, residents can meet with an official Saturday.
Cleanup kits and other relief supplies will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Supplies are also being distributed in Burlington County beginning at noon. Residents can pick up a cleanup kit in either Pemberton or Westhampton.
Cleanup kits will be available in Westville Sunday.
