New Jersey at risk for tornadoes, flooding and thunderstorms
Dangerous weather is threatening the Garden State Wednesday.
New Jersey has the potential to see tornadoes, flooding and severe thunderstorms.
News 12 New Jersey meteorologists say that these storms will contain strong winds, heavy rain and lots of thunder and lightning.
New Jersey residents who are in areas with tornado warnings are advised to stay indoors and seek shelter. It is especially important to stay away from large windows due to the risk of debris and broken glass.
Anyone in an area with a flash flood warning should try to get to an area of higher elevation. Anyone in their vehicles should be reminded to never drive through floodwaters because it may be difficult to determine the depth.

The bad weather is expected to last through Wednesday afternoon and evening and should clear out by daybreak on Thursday.
The severe weather comes one day after a confirmed EF1 tornado touched down in Sussex County, causing massive amounts of damage.
Thursday should start off mostly sunny, but there is still the chance of a thunderstorm. High temperatures will be in the low-80s.
Friday is expected to also see mostly cloudy skies with a high of around 78 degrees.
