PEMA WEATHER ALERT For Potter County, PA

PEMA WEATHER ALERT
As you are probably aware, there is weather moving into the Commonwealth this afternoon that may cause thunderstorms and high winds.

The thunderstorms are predicted to begin in western PA late this afternoon and proceed eastward into central PA through tomorrow. Following these storms, high winds of 20-25 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph are possible.

These winds should start in western PA tonight and will be in south central PA throughout the day tomorrow.


Although no severe damage is being anticipated, there are two issues to maintain awareness on that could exacerbate this weather event:

1. Because we had an extended period of cold weather, there is a significant ice pack on most of our rivers and streams. With the warm temperatures, and the possibility of thunderstorms, we could see flooding due to ice jams. This type of flooding event can happen quickly, and can inundate government with requests for resources and assistance, cause evacuations, road closures and create technical rescue situations.

2. Because of the higher temperatures of late, the ground is fairly saturated due to the snow and ice melt. This saturation, coupled with the high winds and possible additional precipitation, could cause trees and utility poles to topple. This in turn could create road closures, power outages and property damage.

Report Damage Or Flooding

Potter County Department of Emergency Services has been placed on alert by PEMA in regard to this possibly severe approaching storm.

Residents of Potter County are urged to REPORT ANY SEVERE WEATHER, DAMAGE, OR FLOODING to POTTER COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY SERVICES as soon as possible at 814-274-8900 or if no answer, Contact 911.
