Tropical Storm Causes Widespread Flooding in New Jersey

Tropical storm Henri caused flooding across the tristate area from Saturday night, August 21, into Monday, August 23, as heavy rain hovered over the region, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Footage shared on Twitter just after midnight on Sunday shows flooding in Newark, New Jersey. Henri has since been downgraded to a tropical depression.

The flooding threat would persist into Monday, with an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain expected in parts of New Jersey and New York City, the NWS said.

As of around 4 am on Monday morning, approximately 3.85 inches of rain were measured at Newark Airport, NWS records showed. Credit: Adam Segall via Storyful
