The floods of 2011 in New Jersey

As usual, nothing was new of the heavy rains that lashed most heavily in parts of Northeast New Jersey causing floods to towns and areas near Passaic River and the flood is still there. Last year the same thing happened and people had to be evacuated and put in shelter. I don’t know about the people who live near the river, but I just need one flood to make my exit out of the place. First of all I would never buy anything near a river which constantly overflows each year and second even if people want to leave the area, they can’t since they will have to sell their houses first. But who is going to buy their houses when all this news of flood is being flashed all over the news.

It is only the government who will be able to buy their houses. But will the people be able to sell their houses at a profit, I don’t believe so, so they will have to sell it at a loss and go somewhere. But by the accounts of some people, they have been there for a long time and are accustomed to it, so it is their choice. Anyway, the floods have affected many areas along the several rivers that dot New Jersey and it will take some time for the people to return to their homes and start their cleanup process and assess their damages.
