With Overnight Flash Flooding Expected, Hoboken Offering Discounted Garage Parking

Please be advised that the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Hudson County and the surrounding area starting this evening through Tuesday afternoon.

According to the NWS, a low-pressure system south of Long Island will likely produce heavy rainfall with totals of 2 to 4 inches of rain predicted and locally higher amounts possible.

Any intense rainfall of greater than 0.8 inch per hour may result in flooding in low-lying areas.

Avoid flood-prone areas

Residents are urged to move cars from flood-prone areas as flooding is possible at low-lying, flood-prone intersections. The Office of Emergency Management is posting “No Parking Signs” in these areas, which should be taken as advisories. 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.
