A flood warning was issued for some parts of Somerset County overnight into Friday with several roadways and parks closed following this week’s storms.
The warning was issued through 1 a.m. Road closures included River Road, Old York Road, Station Road, and Burnt Mills Road.
The brunt of the storm can be seen at Dukes Park, an area prone to flooding. The baseball field is inundated by water, which makes it appear like a pond.
“It’s definitely been crazy. I live in Manville, and I had to get to work today. There were roads closed, and it took me longer,” said Scott Levine.
According to Somerset County Public Safety, the maximum river stage as of 4:15 p.m. Thursday was 16.4 feet. It’s expected to fall gradually to 6 feet by Sunday.
