Alert

Flood Warning until 04:30PM

At 1211 PM EDT, Big Timber Creek, Pennsauken Creek, Rancocas Creek, and Crosswicks Creek were all above flood stage. Flooding was still occurring along these creeks. Roads remain closed. Rescues and evacuations are being conducted. In addition, the water levels along the Copper River remain elevated. Additional shower and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon. If they fall over the same areas as last night, flooding will further increase and persist through the night. For the tidal portions of the creeks, low tide will occur this afternoon with high tide this evening. The high tide this evening will hamper runoff and likely exacerbate flooding.
