New Jersey residents can monitor rising river levels in real-time

All of the major rivers in New Jersey are monitored by the National Weather Service using stream guages that provide real-time information of the water level. Flood watches have been posted for a large portion of New Jersey (list below) for Saturday. Heavy rains along with fast melting snow could push many creeks and rivers over their banks. 

By clicking a dot you can find out how high the water is now and how close it is to the flood stage.

Green = no flooding

Orange = minor flooding

Red = moderate flooding

Purple = major flooding

New Jersey counties under a Flood Watch for Saturday:

Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, NW Burlington, Salem, Somerset, Sussex, Warren and western Monmouth.

These areas could get 1.5 to 2 inches of rain, which could create flooding of creeks and rivers.
