Flooding Problems Linger Throughout Northeast

Ad Feedback

Flooding continues to plague parts of the country Wednesday night, several days after a powerful nor'easter moved out to sea.

In parts of New Jersey the flooding was so bad that residents were commuting by boat. Thousands of homes are still without power four days after the storm.

One couple living along the Passaic River said this is the worst flooding they have seen in the 14 years they've lived there.

"It's very depressing. All you do is work, work, work to build something, and it's all destroyed," flood victim Marie Philpot said. "I work just to pay insurance for this, and it's paying us nothing."

While the Northeast continues cleanup, the Midwest is preparing for storms that could bring major flooding. Communities in North Dakota and Iowa spent the day filling sandbags.

Many schools cancelled class so students could pitch in. Forecasters predict rivers in some areas could start flooding Thursday.
