This densely packed city of 50,000 is directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
“This is flooding like we’ve never seen,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer of Hoboken, where National Guard troops on Wednesday were trying to rescue thousands of residents trapped by sewage-laced floodwaters. “It filled the city like a bathtub,” she said.
City officials in New Jersey are worried because "the flood waters are a brew of rain and river water mixed with sewage," Ms. Zimmer said.
There are situations like this up and down the coast and the dangers caused by flooding waters are widespread & serious.
One of the most pressing issues is drying out these water laden homes. Since Mold can grow within 48 hours, it is imperative that homeowners & building managers act fast testing properties to make sure they are environmentally safe for people to return too.
