Four videos shot during the flood Tuesday when Passaic River water levels in Fair Lawn rose to their highest level since 1903.
Here are a few videos taken around town Tuesday as water levels rose preciptiously and flooding was deep in some parts of Fair Lawn. They include: 1) A mailman delivering mail on foot to flooded residents on Bellair Avenue. 2) Rushing flood waters coming in from the back-end of the Passaic Tuesday morning at Memorial Park. 3) Flooding on 2nd Street and Morlot Avenue; man hole there spewing with sewer water, as it has been since Sunday. 4) Man successfully bikes across Morlot Avenue through man hole spewing sewer water. Impressive work.
