|Advisory: National Weather Service Issues Flash Flood Watch Through This Evening|
Please be advised that the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the tristate area, with isolated strong to severe thunderstorms, along with damaging wind gusts, possible from 2 pm until 8 pm. 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 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 Hoboken 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) or barricades near flood prone intersections. Please do not drive around barricades. These intersections include:
Please report flooded intersections and clogged drain inlets by calling the NHSA Hotline at 866.689.3970.
Please monitor local forecasts for additional advisories, watches, and warnings. Thank you for your cooperation.
