Motorists Reminded to Watch for Heavy Rain and Flooding; Monitor Weather Through the Holiday

first_img Holidays,  Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf is reminding motorists to be aware that heavy rain overnight, with rain showers through most of the day tomorrow, could impact travel across much of eastern Pennsylvania. Motorists should watch for ponding on roadways and flooding in poor drainage areas while traveling.“I want every Pennsylvanian and every visitor to our state to have a safe holiday season,” Gov. Wolf said. “Please don’t let the distractions of the holidays keep you from driving safely and heeding weather forecasts, especially as we anticipate heavy rain and possible flooding over the next day or so in the eastern portion of the state.”Anyone with properties along rivers and other waterways should keep an eye out for rising water levels from Friday morning into the weekend. Major flooding is not expected at this time, but conditions can change quickly.The National Weather Service says parts of the state could see scattered snow showers Friday into early next week. While significant accumulations are not anticipated, light amounts of snow can create hazardous road conditions.The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) will be in contact with county emergency management personnel to monitor any unmet local needs.PennDOT warns motorists not to drive across roads covered with water because even shallow, swiftly flowing water can wash a car from a roadway. Also, the roadbed may not be intact under the water. And never drive around barricades or signs on closed roads – Turn Around, Don’t Drown.Fines for going around a barricade are $250; if emergency responders need to perform a water rescue or have a vehicle towed, the fine increases to $500 plus two points on the driver’s license.Anyone planning to travel through the holiday weekend should closely monitor weather conditions along travel routes.Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
