As of 2:22 PM here in central Jersey, it’s not even raining yet. It’s slightly overcast and really muggy outside. We did get an email advisory from the township that said:
Alert: OEM advises residents to stay indoors and off roadways severity expected to be as severe as Hurricane Floyd.
The Office of Emergency Management is advising residents that Hurricane Irene will bring heavy rain and areas of localized flooding throughout the Township. Rain, wind and damage is expected to be as severe or greater than that of Hurricane Floyd. Residents are asked to stay indoors and off of roadways.
Will update as the day goes on.
