Cleanup continues at collapsed NJ parking garage

Residents of a northern New Jersey apartment building whose parking garage partly collapsed will be able to get belongings out by Wednesday.

Officials said Monday it's too soon to tell when the 300 residents will be able to move back in to the 18-story building in Hackensack, following Friday's collapse of the three-story garage.

Engineers have found a crack in at least one of the approximately 100 columns that support the building underground. They could not yet determine whether it was caused by the garage collapse.

Officials are also looking into reports of a possible warning to the building's management from its engineering firm about a potentially problematic leak in the garage.

No one was injured in the collapse.
