A New Jersey woman is among the victims of the devastating flash flooding in Pennsylvania that left five people dead.  
Susan Barnhart, 53, of Titusville was swept away in flash flooding that ravaged the East Coast over the weekend. 
Authorities say it's not that the victims tried to drive through rising waters but that the floods were just overwhelming. They are still looking for two missing children whose mother is among the dead. The family's car was swept away in flash flooding.  
Pennsylvania's flash floods also drowned Enzo Depiero, 78, and Linda Depiero, 74, of Newtown; and Yuko Love, 64, of Newtown, according to Bucks County Coroner Meredith Buck. 
In New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency Sunday and surveyed the damage Monday in Warren County. He said there were no reported deaths or injuries due to the severe weather.
