We're getting flood-sacked

    The Susquehanna River is expected to crest at 29 feet tomorrow, and they're evacuating the front three blocks of Harrisburg. In fact, they're not allowing people in and out of the city right now.


    Sad thing: At Hersheypark, they had to euthanize (read: shoot) two bison that were trapped in the flood waters and about to drown.


    FWIW, we're a good 15 miles away. My daughter and her fiancee, though, are bringing their cats and coming down. They're being evacuated in New Cumberland, directly across the river from the 'Burg.

    Just minor flooding where I'm at, but Wilkes-Barre and Bloomsburg are getting hit with it.

    I have family on the river in Lewisburg. I assume they are closer to in the river right now.

    I have heard many stories about the flood of '72 in the Genesee Valley. Bears more than a few similarities to this.

    The folder on the Texas Wildfires needed six hours to get as many posts as this one.

    East coast media bias.

    Is it as bad as Agnes yet? That wiped out a few towns (Steelton among them).

    No. Agnes crested at 32 feet. This one is to reach 29 feet in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

    My uncle and counsins live in York and the surrounding areas. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow.

    One of my cousins facebooked me today and said it hasn't stopped raining since Labor Day.
