NEW YORK (PIX11) — Relentless rain overnight swelled rivers in New Jersey and even though the rain is moving out, the flood risk won’t completely recede until Sunday.
An urban flood warning will remain in effect through 9:15 a.m. Thursday.
Major flooding has been reported along these waterways, which crested Thursday morning and will recede the rest of the day:
- Raritan River
- Millstone River
- Assunpink Creek
Moderate flooding was reported along these rivers, which have crested and are receding:
- Rahway River
- Bronx River
- Hackensack River
Many of those rivers run into Passaic, where minor flooding was reported Thursday morning.
As the now-flooded waterways empty, the Passaic is expected to rise through the weekend up to 20.2 feet and start receding on Sunday.
