Advisory

Flash Flood Event - Roads are open.Cleanup in progress. Will continue through next week.

The Township is in the process of assessing the damage from the flash flooding event. The extreme amount of rain that fell in a short amount of time caused severe flooding to roadways. As a result many roads were impassable. Those roads are now open and Cedar Grove Department of Public Works employees are out clearing storm drains and removing debris from roadways. Thankfully there were no injuries or deaths associated with this event. Police and Fire Department personnel have rescued numerous individuals trapped in vehicles on flooded roadways. They have also responded to many calls for assistance from residents with flooded basements to turn off the gas and electricity service. Residents are asked to only contact the police department for emergencies. All property damage incidents will be addressed after we complete all emergency operations. Cleanup operations will continue into next week.
