Flooded Roads as Heavy Rain Hits Region

Folks in South Jersey and Pennsylvania used caution Tuesday as roads flooded as heavy rain and thunderstorms pounded parts of the area.

The National Weather Service issued Flash Flood Warning through the early afternoon for parts of South Jersey as nearly 5 inches of rain fell in some of Salem County prompting flooding fears.

The heavy downpours weren't exclusive to South Jersey as people along the Main Line and in parts of Bucks County also experienced rain midday Tuesday. The weather service issued a Flood Advisory through 7:30 p.m. for central Bucks County. They had earlier issued a Flood Advisory for other parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The weather service also reported at least 1 foot of of water on Route 73 where it meets the Atlantic City Expressway in Atlantic County.

If you are out driving in the rain DO NOT drive through standing water.

The wet weather also caused some departure and arrival delays at Philadelphia Airport so if you are headed to the airport for a flight or to pick someone up, check your flight status first.

More showers, some heavy, will move through the region overnight. There will be a flood threat Wednesday as the heavy rain continues and there could be localized flooding in the morning and afternoon. The rain should then end by the evening commute.
