BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ — A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening in the area. A moisture laden air mass will allow for any showers and thunderstorms that develop to produce torrential rainfall. Flooding causes more deaths in the United States than any other thunderstorm-related hazard.
Remember: Just six inches of fast-moving floodwater can knock you off your feet. Two feet of water can sweep an SUV off the road.
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.
