September 17, 2018

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Areas of central Pennsylvania are under a flash flood watch due to the remnants of the storm that devastated coastal areas over the weekend.

The National Weather Service has posted a flash flood watch through Tuesday morning for much of the center of the state.

Forecasters are warning of widespread moderate to locally heavy rain bringing 1 to 2 inches with amounts over 3 inches possible in some areas.

Officials say the very wet weather earlier combined with high stream flows mean an increased risk of flooding, especially in urban areas, small streams and creeks and areas that have had flooding in recent weeks.
