Abstract

This report documents hydrologic and meteorologic aspects of flooding in northeastern and central New Jersey during November 8-10, 1977. Peak stages and discharges at 51 streamflow gaging sites are tabulated and compared to previous maximums. High-water flood crest elevations are presented for eight stream reaches in or near Bergen County where the most severe flooding occurred. While no lives were lost, 21,700 homes were affected and 96 million dollars of damage resulted. (Woodard-USGS)
