Northwest NJ Deluged with Rain

A number of media outlets reported that Northwest New Jersey was hit by a huge storm that dumped seven to 14 inches of rain in a six hour period. Some people that have contacted us wonder how bad the damage is. Although we can tell you that the damage is pretty bad (CTDATA is 5 to 10 miles away from the hardest hit areas), we can't get near the areas of worst damage because many roads are impassable.

We did manage to take a couple of photos in Denville and Dover on Sunday morning. Read on if you are interested....

News accounts:

Water over road on Bloomfield Avenue in Denville

Water over the road on Bloomfield Avenue in Denville.

This picture is fairly typical of conditions after a heavy rain storm in Downtown Denville. This is about 1/4 mile from the intersection of Main Street, Broadway, and Diamond Spring Road.

Car under water in Dover

Car under water in Dover. Do you think the price will be reduced after this?

This car is parked in a low lying area of Dover, NJ, across the street from the Rockaway River flood plain.

Kathleen Kuykendall and Dave Aiello in Dover

Kathleen Kuykendall and Dave Aiello near Lakeland Bus Depot in Dover.

This photo is taken near the same location as the submerged car. We're not sure that having Kathleen and Dave in this picture gives it any additional perspective. Perhaps if Dave had waded into the water 25 feet west of this location, it would have given the picture more depth....
