HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. (AP) -- Most of the hundreds of residents who were forced out of their homes by floods were able to return Wednesday as the water receded.
Downpours on Monday and Saturday damaged thousands of homes and wiped out dozens of bridges, roads and dams in northwest New Jersey.
In Byram, about 200 residents returned home Wednesday morning after the rising Musconetcong River forced their evacuations two days ago.
Patrolman John D'Onofrio said the river has receded 2 feet.
