Excerpt:

A levee broke in northern New Jersey on Tuesday, flooding at least four towns with up to 6 feet of water in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the National Weather Service said. In a statement, the NWS said “portions” of Moonachie, Little Ferry, South Hackensack and Hackensack were submerged, with worse to come during Tuesday morning’s high tide, expected at about 10am ET. Possibly thousands need rescue in & near Moonachie NJ after what could be a levee breach or break. Still assessing. Boat rescues needed. — Darlene Rodriguez (@Darlene4NY) October 30, 2012 “We are in rescue mode,” said Jeanne Baratta, chief of the Bergen County Executive. There were no reports of fatalities as of yet, she told Reuters.
