River May Reach “Action Stage” – Not Flooding

The Delaware River is forecast to reach “Action Stage” in the next 24 to 36 hours. This DOES NOT MEAN RIVER FLOODING WILL HAPPEN. It means that in exceptionally low areas in the flood plain, you can expect some water over the river banks and that watercraft, recreational equipment stored near river banks,  and docks should be well secured, as there will be high flow rates and debris in the river.

Downed Power Lines & Power Outages

Winter Storm March 14 2017

Winds are picking up. The worst of the storm is happening this morning.

Do not approach downed power lines, ever, even if they look “dead”

Call Met Ed at 1-888-544-4877 to report the situation. 

If there is an immediate threat to life and property, call 9-1-1 

09 FEB 2017 – Morning – Beware of downed power lines!

The risk of power lines falling is increasing as the wind picks up.
Remember that you don’t need to actually touch a downed power line for it to kill you – simply WALKING near it can be deadly.

31 July – 8AM – Local Creek and Stream Flooding Only

08:29 AM 31 July 2016
The “Flash Flood Warning” you may have just gotten on your phone is for CREEKS AND STREAMS – not the river.
Rains will cause creeks and streams to exceed their banks and may cause them to cover the roads.
Do not drive through flooded roads. The NUMBER ONE CAUSE of drowning deaths in storms is people driving into flooded roads that “didn’t seem that deep.”
