    Not just them! Got some fireworks goin' on here in Philly! Lots of lightning and thunder. Briefly had 1.5"/hr rate. It's a fast mover so got 0.29" from it so far (total 1.61" for the day).

    Channel 6 had a helicopter broadcasting live shots (on their website) over Darby, PA earlier and the city is flooded (it is flood prone as it is). Darby & Cobbs Creeks out of their banks. Brandywine Creek at Chadds Ford is out of its bank. The Schuylkill in Montgomery County at various locations, is out of its bank, and is expected to go past bankfull and flood here in Philly tonight and tomorrow morning. Wish you and your family well and stay safe! There is supposedly more being forecast but hopefully it won't hit those spots that have already been impacted so badly today.

    Mt. Holly issued a Flood Warning for the Schuylkill downtown. I've been watching that gauge all afternoon and with the upstream flooding and the Wissahickon dumping into it (which is a couple feet above its usual depth - been watching that gauge too), it was pretty much inevitable. Edit to add a note that the 5 pm gauge update just came through and the Schuylkill at the Water Works ("Philadelphia") is now up to 9.98 ft. I know when it goes over 10ft it starts lapping up on the banks along the river drives. At over 11ft, that part under the Roosevelt Expressway bridge around Midvale and Kelly Dr. starts flooding.

    You are getting what those other places just got. Pretty nasty. Garden State Parkway is flooded around there. Hope you don't wash away! Meanwhile I'm up to 1.30" and still rising. That comes out to 3.05" over the past 3 days.

    Under a yellow and red blob. The rates (so far) were not as high as a few days ago but still around 3/4" per hour. Just went over the 1" mark and rising. Temp 70.

    After a little bit of a light rain lull, the heavier rain is moving in again here. Currently up to 0.70" at post time. The line looks to be breaking up a bit as it moves into the city but will see what I end up with.

    Rain intensity has really picked up here now as the eastern side of it is moving in. Getting almost 1" hour rates so far and at 0.20".

    I know what you word you WANTED to say but obviously can't on this forum. There were reports of well over 3.5" of rain in Lancaster County this morning so it is definitely concerning - especially for the flashier creeks around this area.

    Looks like that is pivoting this way. It has been raining lightly the past 20 minutes or so (finally tipped the bucket for 0.01") and just heard some thunder a couple minutes ago. Looks like that means business!
