Flooded streets following downpour

Flash flood warnings, issued by the National Weather Service, are effective until  4:45 p.m. in parts of Monmouth and Ocean counties.
 More than an inch of rain has already fallen in many places on Friday, and some areas of the region could get drenched with another 1 to 2 inches in the afternoon, the weather service said.  Around Lakewood  streets are flooded in some cases over 2 feet. Areas to avoid

  1. Williams and james you can see all the water that used to absorbed by the trees coming onto the street. It has been really bad ever since they strip cleared that whole area alongside the tracks to make way for more development.

  2. Its not fair to complain until the new coinstruction is finished and the new storm drains are installed. In,most cases the new storm sewer makes things better ,once it's finished.

    1. They should have to do something in the interim. It is not right to everybody who drives down prospect.

    2. Wrong, sewers get installed first. They are not installing any new sewers, just like no infrastructure is added anywhere in town where construction is going on.

    3. The water drainage is installed at the beginning of the project but isn't operable until after construction is done. The reason for that is that you don't want the construction debris going down Into the drainage system. So while there is flooding now, when the project is done there shouldn't be much of a flooding issue

  7. The difference is in lakewood the politicians are always taking credit but never take blame. Perhaps the DPW should have cleard the sewers ahead of time knowing that a storm was coming.

  8. This has nothing to do with clearing sewers. The rain came down very fast. The national weather service sent out a major flash flood warning.

  10. Are the politicians not responsible for taking care of these things?? Sina is a strong term..i don't think anyone has Sina we just want them to acvtually represent us the people NOT the few special people...

  11. Yes it is sina. When there is a weather event that causes flooding all over the tri state area and the neighboring towns are extremely flooded , then making it sound like lakewood politicians are at fault is pure sina
