Wind gusts up to 70 MPH and driving rains have forced Hoboken to close its COVID-19 Testing Site for Monday, April 13.
Located under the 14th Street Viaduct, the tented site has been battered by severe weather amidst a high wind warning, with more heavy storms likely rolling through later on this afternoon.
Rounds of moderate to locally heavy rain with embedded T-storms will move through the area during most of the AM and into the PM. Wind just above the surface is racing at 60-70 mph so any downpour can mix this wind down. A High Wind Warning is in effect today for most thru 6pm. pic.twitter.com/VA8mTY0tOf
