Parts of New Jersey are still under flood warnings more than 24 hours after Henri dropped several inches of rain on the state.
Lodi is one of the towns under the warning because of the Saddle River. The river is expected to drop below the flood level by Tuesday’s early morning hours.
Water from the river came dangerously close to the Boys and Girls Club, shutting down most programs for the day.
Diego Cruz is the maintenance supervisor. He says that he has been around the area for about 30 years.
“When I came in this morning, I came normally to check the building. But when I came, I see the water all the way up to the gate and that was a problem,” he says.
Luckily, no water got into the building this time.
“Normally we have 13 feet from the basement, so it’s four feet about the first floor,” Cruz says.
The Millstone River in Somerset County crested at around the mark for major flood stage in one Franklin Township neighborhood. The flood warning for the Millstone goes into Tuesday.
The Pequannock, Rockaway and Ramapo rivers are also in danger of cresting over.
