Flooding gives Bound Brook residents sense of déjà vu
? Massive flooding brought on by a wicked nor?easter has left Bound Brook residents with a sense of déjà vu.
As the floodwaters continue to rise, police officers are using boats and even jet skis to coordinate rescues in the area. Officials say the flooding covers a 15-block radius. Many residents were evacuated. A makeshift emergency center was created at City Hall.
Office of Emergency Management officials say no one is allowed back into his or her homes until the flooding subsides. As for when the floodwaters will recede, officials don?t seem to have a definite answer.
The situation is especially difficult considering the area was hit with similar flooding after Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Storeowners say the area just got back on its feet after Floyd, only to be faced with more wicked flooding.
For a news conference with Acting Governor Dick Codey on the flooding, go to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO extra.
