August 27th is the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Irene making landfall on New Jersey.
New Jersey cities still cleaning up from flooding caused by Hurricane Irene and remnants of Tropical Storm Lee could see up to 5 inches of rain.
The National Weather Service declared a flood watch Tuesday for much of Pennsylvania as heavy rainfall from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee moved slowly up the East Coast.
A mandatory evacuation of Cape May County’s barrier islands began Thursday afternoon, and an evacuation of the rest of the county’s residents was ordered for 8 a.m. Friday.
Irene is now officially a major hurricane, having attained Category 3 status just before 8 a.m. this morning, with sustained winds reaching 115 mph.
The peak of hurricane season is still a few weeks away but we are watching Irene closely as she spins near the island of Hispaniola.
After setting a new record for the wettest month (12.97”) in August for Philadelphia, a 3 day stretch of dry weather is finally in the forecast. Once again, heavy showers and thunderstorms caused flash flooding in parts of the Delaware Valley.
