A new report says NJ Transit was warned about flooding in its northern New Jersey rail yards months before Superstorm Sandy struck.
The Record of Woodland Park says the report prepared by a Boonton-based environmental company contained a storm surge map that included rail yards in Hoboken and Kearny where NJ Transit stores rail cars and maintenance equipment.
Flooding from Sandy on Oct. 29 caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.
An NJ Transit spokesman tells the newspaper the agency didn't feel the report offered specific predictions for flooding of the level caused by Sandy.
Executive director James Weinstein told a Congressional transportation committee this month that NJ Transit had felt there was an 80 percent to 90 percent chance that the rail yards wouldn't flood.
