CRANFORD, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick today toured flood damage in Cranford following Tropical Storm Ida with Gov. Phil Murphy. Cranford had 9.05 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service.
“I pledge to work with state and local stakeholders to find a solution to the catastrophic flooding the community faces far too often,” Bramnick (R-Union) said following the tour.
In 2019, Hurricane Irene was particularly devastating for Cranford, where nearly 1,300 residences experienced significant flood damage.
As of Friday afternoon, 25 New Jerseyans had lost their lives as a result of Ida, one of the state’s deadliest storms on record.
