Evacuations Underway After Levee Breaks In New Jersey Town

MOONACHIE, N.J. (October 30, 2012)--Hundreds of people were being evacuated Tuesday after a levee broke in a northern New Jersey town.

Bergen County executive chief of staff Jeanne Baratta told The Record newspaper that the entire town of Moonachie is under water and as many as 1,000 people could need to be evacuated.

Baratta says people in a trailer park have had to climb on the roofs of their trailers to await rescue.

There are no reports of injuries or deaths.
