8th day of flooding

http://www.dailyrecord.com/apps/pbcs...ES01/510140349
OAKLAND (AP) -- More than a week of rain began easing Friday, as flooding problems appeared to subside in super-soaked New Jersey.

Swollen rivers were still running high, but some appeared to be receding, even as numerous low-lying neighborhoods remained under water.

State emergency management officials reported only two evacuations overnight: A combined 100 residents of Neptune Township and Belmar in Monmouth County were evacuated about 11 p.m. Thursday, due to rising water from the Shark River.

Some residents of Lincoln Park, along the Passaic and Pompton rivers, were evacuated Thursday.

Also in Monmouth County, state police and fire officials knocked on doors at an apartment complex in Farmingdale, urging residents to move their cars to higher ground. The complex itself did not appear to be threatened by floodwaters.

"It was a relatively quiet night, fortunately," said Neal Buccino, a spokesman for the state police Office of Emergency Management, which activated its command center Thursday and mustered high-water rescue vehicles and teams. Officials reported no fatalities.

The only request for assistance early Friday, Buccino said, came from authorities in Essex County, who asked the state to keep swift-water rescue boat teams on stand by.

Authorities were still monitoring rivers in north and central New Jersey Friday morning, including the Passaic, Ramapo and Pequannock rivers, which all remain at or near flood stage. Those rivers were expected to begin cresting about 10 a.m., but it was unclear whether they would cause additional problems.

Flood warnings remained in effect for southern Monmouth and northern Ocean counties, and along the Pompton River in Pompton Plains and Ramapo River in Pompton Lakes. Warnings were canceled for the Raritan River in Bound Brook.

As the rain became relentless Thursday, dozens of families in communities such as Wayne, Lodi and Bound Brook left voluntarily, as knee-deep and higher floodwaters isolated their neighborhoods and made access to their homes difficult.

Authorities went door-to-door Thursday night in Wayne, Little Falls, Totowa and West Paterson alerting residents that they might need to get out on short notice. Totowa officials handed out fliers advising residents that the Passaic River was expected to rise 8 to 14 inches above the level it reached when it flooded in April.

In Fairfield, water from the Passaic was lapping at the foundations of homes in Nick Sitarella's neighborhood. He had put most of his belongings in his basement while an addition was being put on his house. But as water began to seep in Thursday, he hired a moving van and loaded it up.

"We got hit in April, we got whacked real bad, so I'm not taking any chances. It's a horrible way to live," Sitarella said.

The northern section of the state got more than 6 inches of rainfall over the past 48 hours, and the precipitation threatened to continue through Friday. The National Weather Service said an area of low pressure stalled off the coast was responsible. A front moving in from the west was expected to bring relief on Saturday.

In Essex County, prisoners from the county jail were pressed into service at a public works garage filling sandbags with sand normally used during snow removal operations.

NJ Transit warned that two of its heavily used park and ride lots, on Route 23 in Wayne and at the Willowbrook Mall, would probably be flooded Friday morning.

Since Oct. 7, Wayne has had 12.85 inches of rain, according to Bob Ziff of the North Jersey Weather Observers. Ramsey has recorded 14.96 inches of rain, Pompton Plains 14.06 inches and Paramus 10.55 inches.
