Hunterdon Commissioners Assess Ida Effects In Hard Hit River Towns
Hunterdon County’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM), Department of Public Works (DPW) and Buildings and Maintenance Division have been cleaning up from the storm and assisting with recovery efforts due to Tropical Storm Ida, Hunterdon County Board Commissioner Shaun C. Van Doren announced during an assessment tour of hard hit areas over the weekend.

Commissioner Van Doren said, “The storm affected many parts of the county, but damage was significantly worse in towns that border the Delaware River. Flooding was sudden and caused damage for many miles across several communities. 

It was devastating to see firsthand what flood waters can do and on Labor Day, the Commissioner Director and I observed those damages in Lambertville, Delaware Township, and Bloomsbury.”
