Only 30 minutes after the rain started, Hoboken flooded. See? We don’t need a “storm of the century” to flood our town, despite what some may say.
While nowhere near as bad as the previous deluge, it still can be prevented.

Here’s a good example of what happens in Hoboken after a decent heat wave.
We get a moderate thunderstorm from time to time. This one is pretty strong today. A 411 reader reported from his way home from work in Union, NJ saying that he was driving through feet of water after only 15 minutes of heavy rain. “A lake came down almost instantly!”
Additionally, there are many lightning and thunder related false alarms that the Hoboken Fire and Police departments are responding to. See any fun flooding? Send some pictures in!
At least it will be nicer and less humid for the next couple days.
