GLOUCESTER HEIGHTS NJ-Newton Creek overflowed early Friday morning leaving sections of Nicholson Road impassable to auto traffic and pedestrians near "Tickle Belly Bridge." Temple Avenue and Rutgers Avenue, two side streets near the bridge, were also flooded.
A Rutgers Avenue resident said, "In my 18 years of living here I have never encountered a flood like this. The water is a foot high in some of my neighbors yards. High tide was at 8 AM. The water started to recede about 11AM," she said.
