Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
6:14 AM EDT
National Weather Service
The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a
* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Camden County in southern New Jersey...
Gloucester County in southern New Jersey...
Cape May County in southern New Jersey...
Atlantic County in southern New Jersey...
Salem County in southern New Jersey...
Cumberland County in southern New Jersey...
Burlington County in southern New Jersey...
* until 1015 am EDT
* at 612 am EDT... Doppler radar indicated an area of heavy rain that
will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding in the advisory area. 1
to 2 inches of rain is locally possible in the advisory area,
which can cause roadway, poor drainage and small stream flooding.
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... don't drown.
Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

* bands of showers will continue moving east and northeast across
the area this morning. Some of these showers could produce
heavy rain and result in a localized flash flood threat. There
could be some isolated thunderstorms as well, which would
further increase the potential for flash flooding.
* An additional one to two inches of rain, with locally higher
amounts is possible in the watch area through the morning hours.
Flooding potential will be very high in those locations that
received heavy rain on Thursday.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
