Hurricane Irene: Stream Conditions at My House

So far the 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.
