Nature bombing Jersey

A potent thunderstorm sets off a flood warning.

Nature bombing Jersey

On a day with tropical-style humidity, a powerful thunderstorm is pounding parts of South Jersey.

It appears the ferocity is focused on Burlington County, and the National Weather Service says that up to 3 inches of rain have fallen in the Medford Lakes area.

A flood warning is in effect for that area.

Meanwhile, the latest radar image shows the storm cluster pivoting toward Philadelphia, and a flood advisory has been posted for the city and the surrounding suburbs.

We'll keep you apprised.
