Streets Flooded in Darby, Pennsylvania, After Heavy Rain

Flash floods swamped parts of Pennsylvania on Monday, August 13, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood watch in effect until midnight (local time).

Portions of nearby northern Delaware, northeast Maryland and New Jersey were also under flood advisories. The NWS said that after days of heavy rain, flash flooding was more likely to occur given the saturated soils and elevated streams.
