Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 12:59 AM EDT on July 28, 2014

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued an

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for... Camden County in southern New Jersey... Gloucester County in southern New Jersey... New Castle County in northern Delaware... Burlington County in southern New Jersey... Salem County in southern New Jersey...

* until 500 am EDT

* at 1255 am EDT...National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated slow moving thunderstorms from northern Delaware into southwestern New Jersey. The thunderstorms are capable of producing rainfall of an inch or two over a short amount of time. The heavy rain may cause flooding of roadways, areas of poor drainage and small streams and creeks.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded roads make the smart choice...turn around...dont drown.
