Weather causing panic, floods in Northeast, Great Plains

CNN iReporter Jorge Londono captured this striking shot of the flooded Passaic River in Woodland Park, New Jersey, Tuesday evening. Flooding from a different storm is now threatening the Great Plains.

Weather experts say flooding in the Northeast has reached its peak, but in the Great Plains, the worst is still yet to come.

The National Weather Service says the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota, reached “major flood stage” this morning. Volunteers from the community are rushing to fill a million sandbags before the waters reach homes and roads.

Are you in the Fargo area? Show us what’s happening. How high are the floodwaters? Are you worried about damage to your home? Let us know what’s going on, but please make sure you don’t put yourself in a dangerous situation.

Along the East coast, the storms have cleared up and power is being restored.

CNN iReporters captured amazing footage of the aftermath in the Northeast, including the flooded Charles River in Boston and uprooted trees in Connecticut and New Jersey.
