Update #1: 2 March Noreaster

There are many area roads that are impassable. Please allow time for the storm to subside and for the roads to be cleared. Crews are working as hard as they can. You can see a live map of where the plows are here: http://www.511pa.com/
 
We are getting many reports of road closures in and around the area. The storm is very dynamic – trees and branches can close a road suddenly in front of an behind you. If you must go out, be prepared to be stuck for hours.
 
DO NOT APPROACH A DOWNED POWERLINE OR A TREE ACROSS THE ROAD! You do not have to touch a downed line for it to kill you!
 
 
WIRES DOWN? Report them via phone: Call 1-888-544-4877

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.

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

The risk of power lines falling is increasing as the wind picks up.
DO NOT APPROACH A DOWNED POWER LINE!
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.”
