New Jersey residents were stranded in floodwaters across the state after the remnants of Ida dumped heavy rainfall in the region, footage from Thursday, September 2 shows.
This video filmed by Hoboken resident Nicholas Lenzi shows a Hoboken Police Department officer carrying a driver stranded in floodwaters to safety on Thursday morning.
“This intersection floods every storm but Ida dropped over three inches of rain in an hour last night at 9 pm,” Lenzi told Storyful.
“The vehicle in the video tried to drive through … but got stuck,” he said. “The police came to help but because he was elderly he was afraid he was going to have a heart attack. So the officer went out to get him and carried him back to dry ground.” Credit: Nicholas Lenzi via Storyful
