Delaware River Ice Jam in the Trenton Area

As of 3:17 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, the National Weather Service reports that the ice jam on the Delaware River in the Trenton, N.J.-area, which was causing water levels on the river to rise behind the jam, has weakened. Upstream water levels have been steadily dropping. However, ice jams can behave erratically, so the National Weather Service advises the public to continue to obtain current updates on this situation.

All forecasts are subject to change, so it is important to keep up to date on the most current information that is available. Please be alert for rising water levels and follow instructions of emergency personnel. 

The Delaware River Basin Commission is neither an emergency management agency offering 24/7 coverage nor a weather forecasting agency. DRBC gets weather-related information - watches, warnings, statements, precipitation data, river rise forecasts, etc. - from the National Weather Service (NWS) through its various web sites, as well as from informational briefings given by their meteorologists.
