VALLEY FLOOD OF 2004
part of our occupation, Implosionworld.com photographers have
become accustomed to documenting disaster scenes around the
recently the disaster came to us.
12th & 13th, 2004, a freak "1,000-year storm system"
stalled near Implosionworld.com's headquarters in Hainesport,
New Jersey, dumping an incredible 13.2 inches of rain in less
than 24 hours. This caused 12 dams in the area to fail, which
resulted in sudden massive flooding and the deployment of major
as close as 1,500 yards from our offices sustained substantial
damage, although the worst flooding occurring about a mile south
in Lumberton and farther along the Rancocas Creek in Medford
Lakes. Governor Jim McGreevey declared a State of Emergency
within hours, and President Bush declared the region a Federal
Disaster Area. FEMA, the National Guard, and dozens of local
organizations have since been working to return the area to
images captured by Implosionworld.com and Protec photographers
during the flooding and its aftermath, several of which you
may recognize from newspapers and periodicals. Click on the
