[ARCHIVED] Bloomfield Clearing Streets and Assessing Damage After Unprecedented Storm

Public Notice

BLOOMFIELD, NJ – The Township is currently in the process of clearing streets of debris and assessing damage. Last night’s storm dropped an unprecedented amount of rain causing flooding, power outages and road closures. 


“I have spent time this morning touring our Township to assess the damage caused by Hurricane Ida last night,” said Mayor Venezia. “There was extensive flooding throughout the Township that affected many families and businesses. If you do not need to leave your home, please stay indoors as it is unsafe to drive at this time. Sadly, we lost one resident as a result of the storm and our condolences are with their family.”


There are sporadic road closures throughout town due to debris and/or abandoned vehicles. Police are actively monitoring these situations.


The Bloomfield Fire Department has been helping residents pump their basements out and will continue to do so. Approximately 200 residents have reported basement flooding and are requesting to be pumped out so please be patient with the public safety team.
