Flooding Possible This Weekend


The following message was sent out by West Norriton Township Emergency Management via the county RSAN system (Ready Montco) today:

Attention residents along the Schuylkill River and flood prone areas. The potential exists for flooding from Friday 3-12 through Sunday 3-14.  Two (2) to four (4) inches of rain are expected during this time with higher amounts possible. 

If you would like to get email and text/sms alerts like this directly from the township, click the Ready Montco link on the left side of this page.

We would like to remind all residents to avoid travelling across roadways covered by floodwaters. 

It takes only about two feet of water to float a car and a car could be pushed off a road by even less water than that depending on the velocity of the moving water.  When a road is inundated, even by seemingly standing water, you have no way of knowing whether or not the road has been compromised.  We urge you to avoid flooded roadways.
