Tropical Storm Fay, expected to come closer to making landfall Friday, has already caused some flooding along the mid-Atlantic coast and southern New England.

Tropical storm warnings and flash flood watches were in effect for the Tri-State coastal area, FOX 5 in New York reported and the worst of the rain in the area is expected Friday afternoon into Saturday morning.

The storm was slightly stronger early Friday as it headed north just offshore of the Delmarva Peninsula at 8 mph with top sustained winds of 45 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported.

On Friday, New Jersey has seen flooding in parts of southern New Jersey, with the National Weather Service issuing a flash flood warning throughout Friday morning for Cape May County. Footage of flooded streets appeared on social media, noting that flooding was caused by rain, not rising tides.

Fay was expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of rain, threatening flash flooding in the mid-Atlantic and southern New England, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. That's down from earlier forecasts of about 3 to 5 inches of rain. Read more at FOX News
