Rain, rain, go away?

September 12, 2018

 | 

If you have been here over the past 15 months or so, you just experienced what can be considered a 100-Year Event. You may not have known it, but you certainly witnessed it.

 

For the first time in the past 93 years of official record keeping, our region has absorbed over 3 additional feet of rainfall, over and above any other measure in the same time period. The overall measurement for the 15 month period exceeds 8 ½ feet.

 

In August of this year, places in Pennsylvania that received 4 inches of rain in a very short timeframe were catastrophically flooded. In our area, we can get 4 inches of rain in a single afternoon burst and our streets can be dry a few hours later.
