Superstorm Sandy

Hoboken residents reflect on storm

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Bartender Donnal McGuire at Northern Soul in Hoboken, N.J., pointed out the water line where Superstorm Sandy flood water flowed into the bar a year ago. He said the bar was closed for two weeks and then needed another three months to get fully up and running again.

For so many in Hoboken the anniversary brings back memories they would like to forget. Evonne Rivera lives in Bayonne but her mother lives in Hoboken. She said she walked all the way from Bayonne to make sure her mother was OK after the storm.

Hoboken was hit hard. The water came from north and the south. Some residents had to be rescued. The PATH train station was closed for months because of flood damage. Some parts of the city are actually 4 feet below sea level.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer told Good Day New York that she wants to prevent future storms from doing the same amount of damage here.

The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
