Levee breaks in New Jersey town, hundreds being evacuated

MOONACHIE, N.J. (AP) -- Hundreds of people are being evacuated after a levee broke in a northern New Jersey town early Tuesday.

Bergen County executive chief of staff Jeanne Baratta tells The Record newspaper ( http://bit.ly/TrQ1Rt ) the entire town of Moonachie is under water and as many as 1,000 people could need to be evacuated.

Baratta says people in a trailer park have had to climb on the roofs of their trailers to await rescue.
There are no reports of injuries or deaths.
