The river has risen over 12' within the past 30 hours or so, which is remarkable for a large river. It's closing in on 16' at Riegelsville with another 6' to go before it reaches bank-full. Most people along the river aren't impacted at 22'. It takes another 2 feet or so to begin reaching the most vulnerable river dwellers.
Clearly the Lehigh River is the most impacted (and largest) tributary to the Delaware. The difference can be seen upstream (Belvidere) and downstream (Riegelsville).
