Somerville was under water but all survived

Juan "JC" Correa of Somerville and his daughter Kaylin look at the flooding on Cliff St.

It was strange sitting around listening to the police scanner as Hurricane Irene roared through New Jersey. Most of the heavy wind and rain was overnight, and it didn’t keep me awake. In the morning I started monitoring and reporting on my Somerville NJ news site, SomervilleToday.com and then headed out to photograph the damage. Flood waters were at near record heights, so I headed to the normal flood areas and places that don’t normally flood.

There are lots more photos at SomervilleToday.com

The street sign for 5th St. barely sticks out of the water.
