Remnants of Tropical Storm Bill are coming; flood watch in effect for our area; barricades ready in Hoboken

HUDSON COUNTY — We’re going to be getting Texas’ exes this weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for our region from June 20, 8 p.m. until June 21, 8 p.m.. The remnants of Tropical Depression Bill will be here in the form of heavy rainfall. The heaviest will all overnight into Sunday morning, possibly totalling 1 to 3 inches.

In Hoboken, the city said, “Residents who have a parking permit decal or Temporary parking permit placard are reminded that overnight parking (8pm to 8am) is available at a rate of $5 every day of the year in Garages B, D, and Midtown.
Barricades have been pre-positioned in case flooded streets need to be closed. For their own safety and to protect property, drivers must obey barricades and not drive through flooded roads. The wake generated by vehicles can cause additional flood damage to homes and businesses. Pedestrians should also not walk through flooded roads as manhole covers can become dislodged and flood waters contain a mixture of rainwater and sewage.”
