Pennsylvania, Susquehanna

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:47 AM EDT on March 28, 2017

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on March 30, 2017


... Flood Watch remains in effect from noon EDT today through late
Wednesday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central New York and northeast Pennsylvania,
including the following areas, in central New York, Broome,
Chenango, Delaware, Otsego, and Tioga counties. In northeast
Pennsylvania, Bradford and Susquehanna counties.

* From noon EDT today through late Wednesday night

* melting snow, and occasional rain through today, will combine to
cause significant rises on rivers and tributaries in the region
later today through Wednesday. Although uncertainty remains to
exactly how much snow will melt, and how much rain will fall,
there is a chance for minor river flooding in the upper Delaware
and North Branch Susquehanna basins. Smaller stream flooding is
also possible in the heaviest snow covered areas.

* The locations which appear to be most vulnerable for minor
flooding at this time are Walton on the West Branch delaware;
Sherburne on the chenango; and Conklin, Vestal and Waverly on
the Susquehanna. Impacts from minor flooding are typically
confined within the natural flood plain of the river. Roads,
homes and businesses within this region of a river are most at
risk for minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. These forecasts can change based on current
conditions.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.





Public Information Statement

Statement as of 8:00 AM EDT on March 28, 2017


The National Weather Service has declared March 27th through March
31st as flood safety awareness week in Pennsylvania.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton will feature information
about a different flood topic each day during the awareness week.

Today's topic: turn around don't drown

The phrase "turn around don't drown" has become a catchphrase in the
media, classroom and even at home. It's one thing to see or hear the
phrase, and another to put it into practice.Turn around don't drown,
or tadd for short, is a noaa's National Weather Service Campaign
used to educate people about The Hazards of driving a vehicle or
walking through flood waters. During the past decade, hundreds of
signs depicting the message have been erected at low water
crossings.

Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than any other
thunderstorms related hazard. The center for disease control and
prevention report that over half of all flood-related drownings
occur when a vehicle is driven into hazardous flood waters. The
next highest percentage of flood-related deaths is due to walking
into or near flood waters. People underestimate the force and power
of water. Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept
downstream.

Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock an adult off their
feet. Twelve inches of moving water can carry away most small cars,
and twenty-four inches of rushing water can carry away most large
vehicles including school busses. It is never safe to drive or walk
into flood waters.

It is impossible to tell the exact depth of water covering a roadway
or the condition of the Road below the water. This is especially
true at night when your vision is limited. It is never safe to drive
or walk through flood waters. Any time you come to a flooded Road,
walkway, or path, follow this simple rule: turn around don't drown.
