TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - The last wave of storms are moving across New Jersey after two days of thunderstorms that drench the state.

Forecasters say a half inch to an inch of rain is possible in southern New Jersey Wednesday morning. A flood advisory is in effect for southeast Burlington, Atlantic, Ocean and Cumberland counties until 8:15 a.m.

A line of thunderstorms on Tuesday caused street flooding and knocked out electricity to more than 17,500 homes and businesses throughout the state. The number of outages has been reduced to less than 1,000 Wednesday, mainly in Gloucester and Burlington counties.

Forecasters say a tornado did not touch down in Burlington County on Monday night. An assessment team determined that a straight line wind was responsible for downing trees and power lines.
