right here. likely millions of gallons has caused tremendous damage here, this is the third break in this same shoprite plaza that we have covered in the past few years. >> i'm wondering if sky force 10 can zoom in to see how many shoppers are still left alongside that store entryway at shoprite who still need to be rescued. they have capped that and i'm sure many people still need to get to their cars. >> reporter: you see these live pictures, as we zoom in on the work, you can see the water has receded from in front of the shoprite itself, people are now able to walk safely from sort of under that awning you see on the right of your screen, right below the shoprite lettering. that's the building where they have begun to wait safely because that pathway had just
6:01 pm
been a flowing river of water. people have been being taken to their cars by raft to get to their cars. right in front of the ross clothing store, even though the water has receded in other spots, the lower sedans, like that white car you see in your frame, still significantly submerged as a result of millions of gallons of water spilling here. >> this is the third time has happened in the same spot, of course engineering firms have to examine the site. george, you covered this when this happen before? >> reporter: this has caused the same problem, really almost this same level of damage, at least two previous times, and here's what's critical to note, the water structure underneath the parking lot is very old, like so
