Several parts of South Jersey are dealing with flooding after slow moving storms dumped several inches of rain into the region.

A flash flood warning was in effect for parts of Burlington, Ocean and Atlantic County until 6:45 p.m.  Up to six inches of rain is on the ground in parts of South Jersey.

Galloway Township, Atlantic County was hit hard by flooding rain. The water partially submerged cars and came up to homes in parts of the town.

"We have never seen this type of water here before," said business owner Ed Fitzgerald. "I did find out that we got six inches of rain in one hour. It's unheard of here. Because of it, the village is filled up with water." 

Crews plan to assess the damage in the town once the water recedes.

A quick moving thunderstorm also hit parts of the Philadelphia area late Tuesday afternoon with torrential downpours and gusty winds. That thunderstorm moved up towards Bensalem and Lower Southampton later on.
