DEVELOPING HARRISON: Heavy Rain Floods Street Around PATH Station in Harrison

Harrison Town

Driving rain on Wednesday closed streets around the PATH Station in Harrison and prompted water rescues on Frank E. Rogers Boulevard before the fast-moving storm moved away.

According to officials, at approximately 12:26 p.m., heavy storms dropped two to three inches of rain, turning streets into rivers around the newly built PATH station and hundreds of constructed apartments in the section of town.

Harrison Police immediately requested Newark officials to close their side of the Jackson Street Bridge as water stranded motorists in their vehicles around on the boulevard.

The National Weather Service reported scattered storms that should popup throughout the afternoon and evening, which will cause flooding on low lying streets in Northern NJ.

Use caution if you are heading out.
