Twin Tiers Brace for Ida
With Ida continuing to wreak destruction in the south, northern states are already starting to prepare for impacts of the storm later in the week.
In a Hazardous Weather Outlook, the National Weather Service in Binghamton says the remnants of Hurricane Ida will move through the Middle Atlantic States Wednesday, September 1, bringing a round of heavy rain with it.
Forecasters say it appears at this time, there could be a period of moderate to heavy rain hitting the Twin tiers, but the track of Ida remains uncertain.
There is a Flash Flood Watch in place for the southern part of Wayne County, Pennsylvania and other areas of Central, Southern and Western Pennsylvania generally from 8 a.m. September 1 to 8 a.m. September 2.
The National Weather Service warns if the very heavy rainfall does develop this far north, then flash flooding and even river flooding could be a concern..
People who live and work in flood prone areas and along main stem rivers should continue to monitor what is going on with Ida as it moves north August into late August 31.
