Even with clear skies, the effects of the latest major storm to hit New Jersey are still being felt. Many rivers across the state were still reaching peak flood stage well into Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. And the historic flooding caused by Tropical Storm Ida could get worse into Friday for some areas. So far, numbers show rainfall was heaviest in northern New Jersey.
As Gov. Phil Murphy noted Thursday, devastating storms like this are becoming more frequent and arriving with greater intensity. Anthony Broccoli, co-director of the Rutgers Climate Institute shares his insight on the storm.
