Heavy rain, lighting cause soggy mess across Garden StatePosted: Updated:
? A downpour of rain and flashes of lightning hit the Garden State Thursday night, leaving many residents soaked.
The water quickly rose on Amboy Avenue. Many residents say flooding is common in the area. However, many say much of the water is absorbed when the rain stops. Drivers also came to a screeching halt for fear of getting stuck.
Homeowners anticipate a major cleanup on Friday.
