The Middle Atlantic River Forecast Center (MARFC) has forecast the West Branch Susquehanna river at Williamsport, Pa to rise to 19.6 feet sometime Tuesday, September 11, 2018 from rain falling now through Monday evening.
This level would place the river near Minor Flood level. It would affect boats and docks in the river and close a few low lying roads.
If this occurs, it would be the third high water event this Summer.
The area remains under a Flood Watch through Monday evening.
There is an additional concern about Hurricane Florence, currently a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean which may influence our weather later this coming week. Stay up dated on this storm (link).
Do not drive through flooded roadways.
Please prepare for this weather event:
- Gas up your vehicle
- Charge your battery operated devices
- Have fresh batteries on hand
- Bookmark weather sites to keep informed
