Profoundly heavy rains have doused parts of the region, but what happened in Millville evidently was one for the ages, or at least the centuries.



Gary Szatkowski, former boss at the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, tweeted that 2.19 inches of rain was measured there in just 24 minutes.






Consulting his government table, that computed to a 1-in-200-year event.

Flood watches remain in effect until midnight for Chester and Delaware Counties, in South Jersey from Gloucester County all the way to the Shore, and northern Delaware.

A flood warning is posted for central Delaware.

The weather service warns that some of the areas that got soaked early could get socked again.
