Hudson County OEM warns of dangerous winds and potential rain May 23

According to an alert sent Thursday, May 23, from the Hudson County Office of Emergency Management, damaging winds of as much as 60 mph could cause scattered power outages, downed trees, and property damage anytime between mid-afternoon and Thursday evening.
Large hail that is capable of damaging vehicles and vegetation is also a threat. Forecasters say a tornado canโ€™t be ruled out, though these extreme conditions are more likely in southeastern Pennsylvania and northeastern Maryland than in New Jersey.
The alert states local flooding is a concern. It will be cloudy for most of the day, and severe weather has the potential to move in from the west this evening.
Wet weather will diminish late Thursday leading to a dry overnight and setting the stage for a pleasant extended Memorial Day weekend.
The Hudson County OEM instructs residents to secure lawn furniture, flags, and garbage cans.
