Thursday Flash Flood Affects Local Portion of 422

MOUNT HOLLY NJ – Heavy rain accompanied by thunder hit western Montgomery County on Thursday afternoon and night (June 3, 2021), creating flash flooding hazards.

One of the most significant local impacts affected drivers on U.S. Route 422 between its Armand Hammer Boulevard and Sanatoga interchanges. Travelers reported a clogged drain there apparently caused water to rise (at top and below) in the left lane on a section of the highway, and slowed traffic to a crawl.

Although the National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ said the probability in the county Friday (June 4) “for widespread hazardous weather is low,” its Experimental Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook did not rule out chances for limited or spotty severe thunderstorm, wind, and lighting activity.
