Water 5 feet deep in Communipaw terminal from Sandy

About the CNJ Communipaw Terminal in Jersey City (now Liberty State Park):
"I didn’t know whether to cry or scream,” said Park Superintendent Rob Rodriguez, recalling when he saw the park’s historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal flooded with five feet of water.

That's a lot of water at Communipaw. There has been a lot in the news about Hoboken terminal flooding because NJ Transit uses it (and it floods more often apparently), but hard to believe 5 feet inside the CNJ terminal. JS
