New Jersey continues to battle rains
New Jersey is battling the rains yet again. First it was the heavy summer rains, then it was Hurricane Irene, then Katia seemed all set to attack the state, and now it’s the turn of Tropical Storm Lee to drench the state.
Weary residents of the Garden State have found themselves in the midst of rains once again.
The showers, expected to last four days, are making the people of NJ pretty nervous.
Residents still battling effects of Irene
With the extensive flooding, power outages and wide spread destruction the state has witnessed, every resident is desperate to get out of this wet spell.
People are still battling the after effects of the Hurricane Irene.
Mushrooms, molds, damaged appliances, wet basements are just some of the problems schools, homes and restaurants are facing. The rain Lee is bringing with it is a further dampener.
Lee not much of a worry
Lee and the rains it is bringing with it are not much of a worry for NJ, according to State Climatologist, David Robinson.
“Unless something really turns on, this is just going to be a nuisance. But, boy, is it making for a lot of nervous people," he said.
Flood warnings issued
The National Weather Service has issued flood warnings for the Passaic River, Pequannock River, Rockaway River, Wanaque River, Raritan River and Millstone River.
Essex, Passaic, Morris counties, Boonton are among the states that may be affected.
