National Weather Service Posts Flash Flood Advisory

Route 9 ponding Conditions, (by Colleen Hall Townsquare Media)

Commuters are being urged to use caution during their commute home tonight.

Dlooding is being reported along the Route 9 corridor that runs from Toms River to Howell Township as heavy rains continue to come down. The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Flash Flood Warning for Northern Ocean and Monmouth counties until 7:15 p.m., and thunder and lightning are being reported throughout the region. 

NOAA meteorologists are monitoring a line of thunderstorms and report that additional rainfall amounts of over an inch are possible in the warning locations of:

West Freehold…Tinton Falls…Red Bank…Long Branch…Lincroft…Highlands…Farmingdale…East Freehold…Belmar…Asbury Park…Sandy Hook…Middletown…Marlboro… Keansburg…Jacksons Mills… Howell…Holmdel…Freewood acres…Elberon…Collingwood park and Adelphia

NOAA offers 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.”

NOAA officials said the severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for all of New Jersey until 9 p.m.

They advise motorists to avoid driving through water-covered roadways.
