Bucks County to Activate EOC in Response to Severe Weather

Navy Blue Seal - website

The Bucks County Emergency Management Agency will activate the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 7 p.m. Tuesday in response to the severe weather affecting the region.

The storm is expected to dump several inches of rain and bring strong winds to the area through Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Monitor local media and weather reports for the latest weather conditions, and stay alert for emergency notifications. 

Flooding is likely along the Neshaminy Creek and in low-lying or flood prone areas, with flash flooding possible during the periods of heaviest rain. Power outages may also occur.

Some road closures have already been reported, and motorists should be aware of hazardous road conditions arising from flooding, fallen trees and downed power lines. 

Residents are reminded not to drive into flooded roadways. It takes just a few inches of water to move a vehicle.

Tidal flooding along the Delaware River also is a possibility this evening, especially during high tide. In Bucks County, tidal flooding typically affects areas near and to the south of Morrisville.

After the rain has moved on, staff at the EOC will continue to monitor the Neshaminy and Delaware, as water levels are expected to rise through Thursday in some areas.

The EOC serves as the County’s emergency response nerve center during incidents that require the mobilization and coordination of multiple emergency services, government and nonprofit agencies.
