There are several water rescues underway in Newark's Ironbound section as cars are becoming stuck on flooded streets at this time.

According to police, please avoid the area of Wilson Avenue and Avenue L as heavy rain has converted streets into rivers, stranding several drivers.

Police are urging good Samaritans not to enter the water to perform rescues due to dangerous extreme conditions

At least one car has several occupants -including 4 children- inside and is stranded in the middle of the flooded intersection.

Firefighters are en route with boats to perform several rescue operations.

Police say do NOT attempt to drive on flooded roads. Do NOT drive around barricades that are blocking flooded roads.
