Storm Brings Soaking Rain, Rapid Flooding to Tri-State

Friday, June 07, 2013

Steady rain will continue to soak the tri-state area overnight and a flash flood warning will remain in effect through Saturday afternoon as the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea hit the East Coast.

The National Weather Service predicts up to four inches of rain will fall in New York City with up to five inches in New Jersey.

“Residents should be aware that you could see rapid flooding, especially in the vulnerable areas,” said Tim Morrin, NWS observational program leader, “and anyone who’s out on the roads traveling this evening — especially when it gets dark — be aware that roads could flood.”

By mid-afternoon Friday, some roads along the Jersey Shore were already experiencing flooding – including Route 35, between Mantoloking and Seaside Heights.

Up to five inches of rain are in the forecast for New Jersey Shore communities. The NWS said New York City could see more than three.
