Flooding concerns in NJ mobile home park

THOROFARE, N.J. - August 14, 2011

Sunday's storm left at least a foot of rain in the neighborhood.

"It was pouring," said Ron Morris. "It was coming down very hard."

The flooded Mantua Creek is creating a lot of problems for residents in South Jersey. Worried residents are watching water levels closely.

The mobile homes flooded just two and half months ago.

"The flooring is just gone. Our couch was floating," said Monica Ballentine.

"I sent my family out of here already," said Morris.

Flood prone roads have been the biggest issue with Sunday's storm.

In Mantua, Blackwood Barnborough Road and Glassboro Road flooded, creating headaches for drivers.

On Pitman Downer Road, the flood water was flowing fast. Residents say street closures are widespread in that area.

"All around my house, there are a couple of irrigation reservoirs that are pretty filled up. We've just been driving around," said Chuck Mubs.

Nearby, the U.S. Geological Survey was testing water levels, trying to keep an eye on conditions and to prepare for any needed measures or possible evacuations.

Gloucester County Emergency Management says there are no injuries to report so far in connection with the storm.
