News

  • Thaw may bring about flooding

    The region is about to experience at least a mini-January thaw, but it might extract a price. Along ice-clogged portions of the Delaware River, flood warnings and watches were posted for Friday morning, and the National Weather Service said temperatures rocketing to 60 on Saturday might conspire with heavy rains to set off more-widespread flooding.
