Susquehanna River Ice Jam Flooding, Wrightsville, PA – 1/26/2018

As more and more ice jams flow south along the Susquehanna river the water levels rise yet again and create more flooding problems. Ice jams begin to pile up right next to rt 624, Long Level Road & Klines Run Road. Many houses on Kinard Lane and Boat House Road are already experiencing flooding problems due to rising river levels and ice jams. Several businesses are affected as well. On January 24th of 2018, river levels were close to flooding Kinard Lane and Boat House Road areas. Businesses such as Long Level Marina, along the Susquehanna river side of rt 624, were not flooded at the time but as of January 26th 2018 they are.
