When it rains- confusion reigns

The Sunday edition of the Morning Call writes about the universally misunderstood and confusing term 100 Year Flood, something that is worth reading for those truly interested in learning about the topic of Delaware River floods. Hey, it beats living in denial and flailing about for a perpetrator to blame.

The topic of Delaware River floods is complex in that it involves many different factors, none so basic as the FLOOD PLAIN.

The Morning Call also has a lead story about solutions to the flooding, the only sane solution in my view.

The river is continuing to slowly fall and is now below 7' at Riegelsville. It would normally be closer to 3' this time of year.
