    Many waterways in northern New Jersey, including the Ramapo, Passaic and Pompton rivers, flooded after Sunday's rains, the National Weather Service said.

    Little Falls has set up a temporary shelter for evacuees with more rain on the way this week. 

    Around the area, many streets remain flooded over. 

    In Wayne, N.J., water threatened several homes near the the Ramapo river and in Pequannock Township, surging waters shut down a major highway running through Passaic County on Monday.
