- Christie Administration, National Weather Service Announce New Interactive Flood Warning Maps for Passaic River Basin - The latest in a series of online, interactive flood-preparation maps designed to assist emergency management personnel and keep residents in the Passaic River Basin informed about flooding events in real time has been launched, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin announced today. 7 flood inundation maps, covering portions of 20 northern New Jersey municipalities, are now available online through the National Weather Service, a component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
- Inundation Mapping Locations - Utilizing the Google-maps based interface, users can zoom into the northern New Jersey area and select one of the multiple flood map locations.
