6.30" inches of rain. My creek left it's banks and made it into my garage, basement and crawl space. I've been here 17 years and the creek never got close to the house before.

Drove to work from Allentown to Bath. 20-25 minute commute took about 30. No flash flooding...yet. I imagine there will be in the next hour or two.

Center of rotation is smack over West Chester 

 

I'm south /south west of there about 15 miles.  You could definitely tell when the center was whizzing by.  Getting some gust, but the rain has let up tremendously

5.5 inches of rain so far. Wind is gusting. My wind gauge registered a 50mph gust. Power just went out. Sounded like a transformer boom in the distance.

I currently have light rain and am at 4.84" and 71.  I saw a flood warning issued for the Perkiomen Creek but I expect the Wissahickon may be out of its banks since it is normally less than 2.5 ft and it is now over 7 ft as of the noon report.  The Schuylkill is getting close to 10 ft (also per the noon report) and starts minor flooding at around 11 ft.

Rain has mostly let up here, getting a little sun at times now, but the winds have been really cranking here from the WSW. Don't know the speed but our neighbor had a pretty large tree blow over, roots and all. The top of it is up against his house, but not enough to do any serious damage, from the looks of it. Strongest winds of the storm by far.

Total rainfall here is 6.40", probably close to the final total. Pretty good storm when all is said and done.

Here too Kamu.  Higher gusts were on the back side.  I opened some windows so hoping the sun won’t come out. The breeze feels good at the moment.

Still a lot of water upstream yet for the Schuykill...might take until tomorrow for it to max out?

Yep not a nothing burger like we always see from a low end tropical systems hitting the Carolina's and cruising through, two thumbs up

Yup that was the concern - particularly if the Wissahickon is adding to whatever is coming downstream from Montco.  I am sure the feeders to the Wissachickon like the Cresheim Creek, are flooded.

Am currently up to 4.92" but the winds have kicked in big time and temp is down to 70.  I popped out and it wasn't soupy. I did accidently interrupt a hummingbird out at my feeder trying to get a drink. :lol:

EDIT - Mt. Holly just declared a Flood Warning for flooding of the Schuylkill at Pottstown.
