The NJ Office of Emergency Management is currently monitoring Tropical Storm Andrea, in conjunction with the National Weather Service and other government and non-governmental stakeholders.
The latest briefing from the NWS Mt. Holly Office can be found here: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/phi/briefing/packages/current_briefing.pdf
According to the NWS, “Tropical Storm Andrea has developed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Andrea’s track will affect the East Coast in the coming days. Regardless of whether Andrea is still a named tropical system when it arrives in our area, significant amounts of tropical moisture will stream up the East Coast, bringing the potential for heavy rainfall to the region. Widespread rainfall amounts of two to four inches are expected, starting late tonight, and ending on Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts in this range will produce flash flooding, as well as potential river flooding.”
