FLOOD SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK
Flood Safety Awareness Week continues with topic #3 today. FLOODING – causes and severity. In Pennsylvania, there are two ways that flooding typically develops. Excessive rainfall and snow melt when combined with rainfall. Widespread rain ahead of a warm front, slow-moving thunderstorms and tropical cyclones are the main causes of excessive rainfall for our region. Tropical cyclones are significant contributors to inland flooding because of the intense rainfall they can produce. Slower moving cyclones are significant contributors to greater rainfall amounts and devastating flooding. During winter, snowmelt combined with rainfall, can lead to flooding too. Snow’s water content is released and run off into the waterways when it melts. The melting is due to rapidly warming temperatures, rain falling on the snow or both.
