The Pasaic River also overflowed on Thursday night, flooding nearby streets.

CBS2 spoke with the owner of the restaurant who said he has 2 meters of water in front of his business.

“We still have a lot inside, we can’t really leave,” he said. “We have one area they can go through if they want to go through 2 feet of water.”

That water has receded since then.

Ramapo police also released a photo of a car stuck in flood waters on South Pascack and Grotka roads.

  1. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
