TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Heavy rain has ended across New Jersey, but flooding remains a problem in parts of the state.

The National Weather Service says trained spotters recorded 5 inches of rain in Medford in Burlington County and Greenbrook Township in Somerset County.

Most of the state received more than 2 inches of rain by early Wednesday night.

Forecasters say major flooding is possible along the Millstone River in Hillsborough and the Raritan River in Bound Brook. Both are well above flood stage.

Some towns are reporting flooded roads and street closings.

New Jersey Transit is cross-honoring bus and rail tickets systemwide Thursday. Montclair-Boonton Line service is suspended between Montclair State University and Denville due to track damage caused by the weather.
