"Well, that was quite a storm!"
That was Facebook comment from the Hammonton Fire Department after more than two inches of rain fell in just over an hour Tuesday afternoon, causing flashing flooding, stranding drivers, setting off alarms and leading to at least two water rescues in Hammonton.
Heavy rain started a little after 5pm, with 2.23 inches of rain falling according to the National Weather Service. Hammonton firefighters were called in to help with water rescues on the corner of Central and Valley Avenue and on the corner of Packard Street at Pleasant Street.

According to Lite Rock Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, more heavy thunderstorms are in our forecast for Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to fire up around mid-afternoon Wednesday (about 3 p.m.) Very heavy rain will be our biggest concern. As we saw on Tuesday, if you pick up an inch or two of rain in an hour, localized flooding and ponding issues can occur quickly. Gusty winds and wicked lightning are possible from these storms too.
