Heavy rains cause flooding in parts of NJ

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Strong storms brought heavy downpours and flooding to some areas Saturday.

Action news was along Essex Avenue in Margate Saturday afternoon where several cars were stuck in water more than two feet deep in some places.

Neighbors helped an elderly couple in trouble by pushing their car to higher ground after it stalled in the water.

"Everything was flooded. I didn't know which way to go, so I went the way that I thought would be the best, but it didn't work out. I got into a horrible mess," said Edie Kossoff.

People in neighboring areas decided to take advantage of the water by riding their bikes or taking their dog on a walk.
