Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 6:38 PM EDT Aug. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in State College PA has issued a

* urban and small stream flood advisory for...
northern Lancaster County in south central Pennsylvania...

* until 930 PM EDT

* at 631 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated locally very heavy rain due
to thunderstorms. This will cause urban and small stream flooding
in the advisory area. Between 2 and 3 inches of rain has already
fallen across the middle and upper portion of the Chickies creek
and little Chickies creek basin between Manheim and Mount Joy.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Akron, Ephrata, East Petersburg, Mount Joy, New Holland, Manheim,
Lancaster, Lititz, Willow Street and Leacock.

Additional rainfall of 1 to 2 inches is possible from near
Landisville to East Petersburg and Lancaster over the next hour or
two. This additional heavy rain will likely become focused across
the Conestoga and little Conestoga basins through 730 PM, resulting
in additonal minor flooding of poor drainage areas and rapid rises
on larger streams.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Keep children away from storm drains, culverts, creeks and streams.
Water levels can rise rapidly and sweep children away.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
