Heavy Rain Slows Commute, Causes Flooding in Parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey & Delaware

Thunderstorms and heavy rain slowed the early morning commute and caused some street flooding in parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team issued a First Alert for street flooding and rising creeks and streams until 9 a.m. for most of the Philadelphia region.

The National Weather Service says more than 4 inches of rain fell Monday in Ship Bottom, Ocean County and Washington Township in Gloucester County. About 5 inches fell in Wilmington, Delaware. 

There was street flooding in Camden, which caused the suspension of the RiverLINE at one point.

In Philadelphia, crashes caused backups on Interstate 95 and Schuylkill Expressway (Interstate 76).

Localized street flooding also caused problems in Philadelphia and the suburbs so give yourself extra time to get to work Monday morning.

Once the rain moves out, parts of the area could see some sunshine later in the day as temps warm into the upper 80s. There is a possibility for some scattered storms later in the day as well.
