Flood Emergency in New Jersey

Monday, April 04, 2005

Rain-swollen rivers around New Jersey are slowly receding. However, they may not fall below flood stage until late today of this evening. A state of emergency remains in effect.

A flood warning continues for the Ramapo River at Mahwah. It also covers the Delaware River at Tocks Island, Belvidere, Easton Phillipsburg Bridge, Frenchtown, Milford, Stockton, Washington Crossing and Trenton.

There are numerous road closings in north and western Jersey.

The Statehouse and all state office buildings on the south side of State Street in Trenton are closed from Calhoun Street East to Broad Street South.

Acting Governor Codey has scheduled a news conference to update the situation later this morning.
