Lower Makefield Township, Bucks County
A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect from Wednesday morning September 1, 2021 through Thursday afternoon. Remnants of Hurricane IDA will pass through our area.
Periods of heavy rain, likely to exceed 6 inches, will cause flash flooding, creeks & streams to overflow, and some roadways under water.
The Delaware River is predicted to rise to 18.2 feet. At that level, water begins to cover some portions of River Rd.
Due to existing wet conditions along with the amount of anticipated heavy rainfall, trees may fall causing some roads to be blocked and electrical lines to come down.
Tornadoes are frequently a concern with tropical systems.
