River Level Not Expected to Flood Today

National Weather Service graph predicts the Allegheny River to rise from 12 to almost 15 feet – well below flood stage today.

As of 6AM this morning, the National Weather Service has not included Armstrong County in its flood advisory that has included Westmoreland, Allegheny, and Beaver counties. Water levels in Kittanning on the Allegheny River last Friday were estimated to reach 19 feet – just two feet below flood stage. A revised chart on Sunday night showed water forecasts now are expected to be only 15 feet today. Lee Hendricks, hydrologist at the National Weather Service, will give a live update during “David & Friends” on WTYM AM 1380 radio between 9-11AM this morning.
