TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Parts of New Jersey are drying out after heavy rain caused street flooding and power outages.

Unofficial National Weather Service observations show nearly 9 inches of rain fell at Millville Airport in Cumberland County between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. There was more than 7 inches in Stafford, more than 5 inches at Atlantic City airport and in Manasquan, and more than 4 inches in Tabernacle.

Several homes were evacuated along Rhonda Drive in Millville because of flooding. Relatives tell the South Jersey Times a woman sustained broken ribs and a punctured lung when the walls of her basement collapsed due to flooding.

WCAU-TV reports no one was injured when a section of basement wall collapsed inside a group home in Vineland.

Less than 1,000 customers are without electricity statewide.
