03.14.10 Water everywhere in the tri-state area

Well I am sure this is a familiar scene in your basement if you live in the tri-state area. Reports of 4-7 inches of rain fell yesterday and needless to say all the streams, rivers, lakes, and ocean have hit flood stage. Some of the local waters- the South Branch of the Raritan River was a little under 20 cfs on March 7 is now at 2,700, the West Branch of the Delaware was at 1,800 on March 7 is now at 3,300, and the Lackawanna River was around 2 feet on March 7 and is now at 5 feet. So there is a ton a water out there. This week temps should be up in the 50's so it should dry things up quickly.
