Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 11:54 PM EDT Mar. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* urban and small stream flood advisory for...
northwestern New Castle County in northern Delaware...
Cecil County in northeastern Maryland...
Berks County in eastern Pennsylvania...
northwestern Montgomery County in southeastern Pennsylvania...
Chester County in southeastern Pennsylvania...

* until 415 am EDT.

* At 1149 PM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
up to two and a half inches of rain have fallen with the heavy
rain earlier Thursday. Although the heavier rain has subsided,
there is a chance for additional rainfall overnight. Additionally,
many local creeks and streams continue to run high from the
runoff from earlier and will take a little while longer to recede.

* Some locations that could experience flooding include...
reading, Newark, Middletown, West Chester, Elkton, Calvert,
Pottstown, Phoenixville, Coatesville, Wyomissing, Downingtown,
Elsmere, Kennett Square, New Castle, Birdsboro, Collegeville,
Oxford, Kutztown, Royersford and Hamburg.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

A flood advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
