Will Manville get wet?

Even as we are trying to wrap up our look at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed, things are getting pretty dicey on the downstream side of things. Here is the threat assessment from the Home News and Tribune:
The Raritan River will crest just below flood stage in Manville, according to the National Weather Service. Flood stage in Manville is 14 feet and the crest is predicted at 13.9 at 1 p.m. Friday.

At 15 feet Dukes Parkway begins to flood Manville. At 14 feet, street and roadway flooding widespread in the Manville area. At 13 feet, Southside Ave. in Somerville floods. Cautionary stage is reached at 12 feet with minor street and roadway flooding. At this 11 feet, some flooding of roadways begins.
