HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvanians are being hit by downpours and bracing for high winds from the remnants of Hurricane Ida.
Forecasters are warning Wednesday that creeks, streams and rivers will be inundated across the state’s southern tier. The National Weather Service says the highest risk of flooding from the rains extends hundreds of miles along the border with Maryland.
The Susquehanna River is projected to crest sometime Thursday, and there is a minor tornado threat. Around-the-clock operation of the state’s Commonwealth Response Coordination Center is underway.
