Severe Weather Alerts

Lancaster County is currently under a tornado watch until 7 p.m. tonight and a flash flood warning until 5:45 p.m.

National Weather Service Doppler radar estimates and rain gage reports indicated heavy rainfall of over 2 inches in the past 3 hours across the region. Additional very heavy rain from showers and thunderstorms over the next few hours will likely lead to flash flooding throughout urban areas and along smaller streams.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. Most flood related deaths occur in automobiles. Do not attempt to cross water covered bridges, dips, or low water crossings. Turn around…don’t drown! Never try to cross a flowing stream, even a small one, on foot. To escape rising water move up to higher ground.
