Be advised that the Harrison Weather Center has issued a storm watch for Hudson County and the surrounding area predicting heavy rain and winds beginning Monday night.

Rain will develop late Monday into Tuesday with 1 to 2 inches of rain predicted and locally higher amounts possible. Flooding is possible in low lying areas.

Avoid flood-prone areas

Any intense rainfall of greater than 0.8 inch per hour may result in flooding in low-lying areas. Residents are urged to move cars from flood-prone areas as flooding is possible at low-lying, flood-prone intersections. Local Offices of Emergency Management are posting “No Parking Signs” in these areas, which should be taken as advisories.  In Hoboken, cars will not be towed. Barricades will be deployed near flood-prone intersections. Please do not drive around barricades. 

Please report flooded intersections and clogged drain inlets by calling the NHSA Hotline at (866) 689-3970.

Secure loose objects 

Winds of 15 to 30 MPH are predicted Monday night. Residents should secure all loose objects outside or bring them inside, especially on balconies. Outdoor tents should be taken down depending on wind load.

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages.
