We’re know this sounds like a broken record — er,  make that a faulty thumb drive — but once again, Morris County is under a severe thunderstorm watch.

Through 9 pm on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, we are subject to bombardment by quarter-inch hailstones, which could become more like shrapnel in 60 mph wind gusts.

This is according to the National Weather Service, which also warns us to beware of flash floods overnight.

Jeff Paul of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management says heavy rains could persist through 7 am on Wednesday:

Rainfall through tomorrow morning likely will be in the 1-3″ range which may cause flash flooding. Rain showers will end Wednesday morning. Stay safe!

Here are safety tips we posted yesterday. Stay safe!
