down there with a mop? the fact is that we had all the roads cleared. we had new jersey transit back up and for the people who did sustain flooding, we had folks on the ground to evacuate them if they needed to be evacuated. no one needed to be evacuated. >> nbc 10 did in fact show you people who had to beç evacuate. rescue during the blizzard like this one in wildwood on saturday. christie said his lieutenant governor was in cape may county yesterday and his team assessing damage and helping business owners who may want to apply for loans or grants. the mayor of north wildwood released this statement, his comments are disrespectful to the property owners and residents who went through a traumatic weather event. now your nbc 10 weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> 6:39 and cold. i'm tracking some area of
