Advisory: Storm watch in effect for Thursday with heavy rain and wind expected

A storm watch is in effect for Thursday, October 29. Heavy rain and wind gusts are expected, with rain totals up to 2 inches.  Any intense rainfall of greater than 0.8 inch per hour may result in flash flooding in low-lying areas.

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages. Please report power outages and downed wires to PSEG at https://nj.myaccount.pseg.com/myservicepublic/outagepublic.  

Residents and businesses should secure all loose objects outside or bring them inside, especially on balconies. Outdoor tents should be taken down depending on wind load.

Due to the likelihood of flooding in some areas, the Office of Emergency Management is taking precautions by putting no parking signs (“No Parking Signs” in these areas should be taken as advisories, cars will not be towed) and barricades near flood prone intersections. Please do not drive around barricades. These intersections include:
