Flooding photo contest

9/5/2008:

If what forecasters are saying comes true, then Hoboken has a fairly decent chance to become flooded on Saturday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the entire area:

“HEAVY RAIN ASSOCIATED WITH THIS TROPICAL STORM WILL SPREAD WELL AHEAD OF THE MAIN LOW LATE TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY NIGHT… WITH THE HEAVIEST RAIN EXPECTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY NIGHT. TROPICAL STORM HANNA IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE ANYWHERE BETWEEN 3 TO 6 INCHES OF RAIN WITH SOME POSSIBLE HIGHER AMOUNTS ACROSS THE WATCH AREA. THESE RAINFALL TOTALS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE FLOODING ACROSS HIGHLY URBANIZED AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS AND CAUSE SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS TO FLOW OUT OF THEIR BANKS.”

Dinner and a Massage

If Hoboken does end up under water, send your photos, video clips, or anything related to the flooding and Tropical Storm Hanna, and I’ll post on 411.

I’ll pick my favorite submission, and the winner will receive a free massage at Spa H, and a gift certificate for Helmers’ Restaurant.

Rules:

  • You should be a registered Hoboken411 reader (please supply username when entering)
  • You can Photoshop or edit the photo, but the picture must be of any actual flooding that happens on Saturday

PS, if Hoboken does NOT flood, then well, I look like an idiot for hyping it up…

In the Long Hill Township section. I spent my summers and winters in the woods exploring and doing a little fishing and the occassional hunt (when permitted by the refuge). My first job was with the Youth Conservation Corps (sounds so Maoist, no?) fixing the blinds and the boardwalks while maintaining the trails. We made $3.25 an hour. Minimum wage in 1988. It was a nice place to grow up.

my grandparents lived on Southern Blvd in Chatham and their property backed up to the Great Swamp! Spent a ton of time exploring there.

Out by Madison or farther over? I know those trails, paths and boardwalks like the back of my hand.
