Fridays make for good movie nights!
A drop of rain – and Hoboken floods again
Reporting on every flooded intersection in Hoboken each time it rains gets almost as tiring as those who have to deal with it. So I’ll hand today’s “flood, rinse, repeat” coverage over to the folks at Eyewitness News – who got stuck in the Mile Square flooding themselves. Note that another heavy batch of rain is expected in a couple hours!
Flood Watch in effect for Hoboken, NJ (again)
The National Weather Service has once again issued an area flood watch for Friday afternoon into Saturday. Folks with common sense know what to do. Have fun!
Hoboken Flood Watch 9/23 – 9/24
