Hurricane Irene: Stream Conditions at My House
Bushkill Creek near Maltby Hollow is not as high as it was earlier this week, but the rain is coming down hard. The state has a meter across the stream and it's still in the 2+ feet range. With one day, 4 inches rain I'll bet it goes over 3 feet by tomorrow. Flooding here would require something over 9 feet, so there's nothing to worry about for us from this storm. But wind is always a scare with all the trees around here. So far there hasn't been much wind, but I assume that will change by tomorrow morning.
