Transcript for Superstorm Sandy Berm Breach in New Jersey
Let's bring in bergen county executive, jeanie baratta. It will be close to 2,000 when all is said and done with the storm and the event happening here in moonachie. Those three were the worst last night. We're not sure what happened, what the governor said, a breach in the levee or a swell of the tide that caused that water. Those three towns were under four, five and six feet and more of water. I understand rooftop rescues are under way. That's correct. We have the state national guard, the sheriff's office, the police office. We're doing rescues with large trucks. Doing rescues all over those areas with everybody pitching in to help. And give us a sense of how large the rescue operation is right now and how long you expect it to continue. It's going to continue all day. Now, we're to search and rescue. We're going to have people going door-to-door, knocking on doors. I'm in teterboro, and we're bringing people here. To this area, bringing families. We're letting them bring their pets. Nobody likes to leave their pet at home. We're allowing them to bring it here. And we're evacuating people. Anybody that needs medical attention, special treatment, we're evaluating them at our teterboro voc-tech school. Jeannie baratta, thanks so
