The mail truck got caught in icy high tide floodwaters on North Road in the borough.

That Letter Carrier should be suspended for a week for their reckless behavior for endangering him/herself and the mail entrusted to him/her by driving into a flooded area ___and for the thousands of dollars of damages caused to the post office vehicle fro the salt water.

Lighten up Francis, if you read the story elsewhere that includes a bit more details, you will see that it wasn't flooded when he initially parked there and walked around to do his mail route of the neighborhood. Or are you saying that the USPS should never deliver anywhere onto the ENTIRE Monmouth Beach Peninsula because it is in danger of flooding at any given time?
