Today marks one year since flash flooding hit Manchester and Delaware County.
Last year on October 1st, heavy rains filled up the dry runs in town, causing the water to quickly rise around West Delaware High School and along Highway 13 on the west end of Manchester.
And as we kick off October this year, heavy rains are possible again. The National Weather Service says parts of the state got heavy rain over the weekend and there’s the potential for some areas to get much more.
It’s been a wet start to fall, with September bringing around seven inches of rain to Manchester – that’s twice as much as normal.
Be sure to keep it tuned to KMCH – we’ll let you know if any watches or warnings are issued – and we’ll be keeping an eye on our local river levels too.
