MAHWAH, N.J. — With a hazardous weather warning issued through Tuesday, Oct. 5 by the National Weather Service, Mahwah Mayor William Laforet is urging residents to sign up for the text-messaging alert service Nixle.
The alert system was established after Hurricane Sandy as a way to deliver storm warnings, police activity and important community updates “to the palms of Mahwah taxpayers’ hands, free of cost,” Laforet said.
The region is expected to experience heavy rain showers tonight night into tomorrow, in advance of Hurricane Joaquin, which is expected to make landfall on the East Coast on Sunday.
Showers will continue through the weekend and may result in flooding, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Paul Walker said.
The rainfall is a result of a front moving through the Tri-State area and is unrelated to Hurricane Joaquin, the National Weather Service said.
