Forecast for March 9th and More Info on the Major Rainstorm

Anyone living close to a creek or river, I would be taking precautions for a major rainstorm expected to hit on Thursday with creek and rivers rising to flood stage by Friday Afternoon. After crossing the Delaware River at Washington Crossing this morning, I really had a chance to see how swollen the rivers have been over the last few days. With another 2-4 inches of rain coming Thursday, I could definitely see places like Yardley, New Hope, and Langhorne being flooded on Friday and Saturday.
