Question about the flood in Hobocken -

Bear with me on this, please, but -

if the water was from storm surge, wouldn't it have flowed back on its own by now?

Is Hoboken below sea level?

Did a dike or levee fail?

Is the flood water actually due to streams rising due to excessive rain fall?

1. it is below sea level, and the water has to be pumped out like NO

 

A berm was washed away, allowing the river to swamp the town. It is still raining north, feeding the river a bit too, but the water in town is toxic soup now

2. Thanks for the info - the national reporting tends to

be a little haphazrd.

I'm assuming the toxins are from tanks that were washed away?
