Well, this has been one for the record books. The Raritan and Millstone have crested and started the slow slide down. In terms of river heights it’s definitely #2/#3 around the area, only being beaten handidly by Floyd. In all honesty, that makes Floyd more impressive by comparison. When you consider how Floyd had about a foot of water in the Manville movie theatre, I would have been in several feet of water.
Still, that doesn’t take away from this storm. Large parts of Manville are inaccessible to car traffic, including all the sections of Main Street by the Walmart/Police Station, Dunkin Donuts & church, the entire Weston Canal section (except for an emergency use only overpass over the rail line), and my neighborhood in the Lost Valley.
It certainly hurts the town, and reopens all the memories of Floyd.
