Lehigh River Ice Jam in the Easton Area

As of late-morning on Thursday, Jan. 9., 2014, the National Weather Service (NWS) reports that an ice jam is still in place along the Lehigh River (a tributary of the Delaware River) just downstream from the old Glendon Bridge in Easton, Pa., so it has extended its flood warning for southcentral Northampton County.

All forecasts are subject to change, so it is important to keep up to date on the most current information that is available. Ice jams can behave erratically. 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.

It is hoped that the links offered on this page will help you to obtain the current information you need. Also stay tuned to local TV, radio, and NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts for updates.
