Coastal Flooding and Snow Expected to Begin Today in South Jersey [UPDATE]
Heavy winds, rain, snow; it’s certainly not spring in South Jersey yet….
The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood warning for Atlantic, Cape May, and Burlington counties. A high wind warning is also issued for Atlantic and Cape May.
A winter weather advisory is in place for all of South Jersey, with at least two to four inches of wet snow possible.
With wind gusts up to 50mph and heavy rain expected, this storm becomes yet another road block for those still reeling from Hurricane Sandy. One of the biggest problems could be flooding in areas where dunes were washed away and many damaged homes still sit open and exposed.
While this storm won’t be as bad as Sandy, it’s still a good idea to be prepared. Make sure to have plenty of groceries in the house, as well as a first aid kit and other emergency related items.
