In Photos: Hurricane Irene Floods Union County

Photos from across the region show the damage, aftermath and major flooding from Hurricane Irene.

In Union County, nearly all towns are dealing with flooding, from sporadic road closings to massive floods.

In Union Township, cars on parts of Morris Avenue were covered in water up to their handles. The current was so strong that small waves were lapping against the wall of the Reliable Home Inspection building.

Across the street, at the Crossroads Christian Fellowship Church, a replica of Noah's Ark appeared to have run aground in a front lawn that looked more like a small pond. Roads leading to portions of Route 22, Springfield Avenue and Millburn Avenue were closed due to roughly four feet of flooding.

A few towns over in South Orange, we found children splashing in Irene's puddles.
