The New Jersey National Guard has come to Hoboken to help residents of the heavily flooded city on the Hudson River across from New York City.
Officials announced the Guard's arrival in messages posted late Tuesday on the city's Twitter and Facebook accounts. It says Guard members will use high-wheeled vehicles to assist in evacuating residents and delivering supplies to flooded areas in the mile-square city.
Hoboken was hard hit by Superstorm Sandy, which flooded roughly half the town.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer had asked for the guard's help late Monday, noting that many residents were stuck in their homes due to the floods, which also hampered emergency response.
