Many streets in Lakewood were flooded on Monday morning, as heavy rains swept through the Tri-State area.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for all of Ocean and the southeastern part of Monmouth counties.

“Heavy rain is expected to occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage,” the NWS warned in a watch declared earlier this morning. “Streams and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.”

As of 11:00AM, Lakewood Chaveirim reports that they have already responded to 130 emergencies, with many people trapped in flooded vehicles, to basements totally under water.
