Disregard The National News

Regardless of what some national news showed/said:

(a) Wilkes-Barre was not flooded
(b) Helicopters were not picking people off roofs (that was two counties north of us)
(c) Whatever water damage Wilkes-Barre got was in the south end and was caused by streams from the Back Mountain, not connected to the river.
(d) Parts, and only parts, of the city were evacuated from 8pm until noon as a precaution
(e) Everybody is fine.

In the low-lying areas, there was the usual and expected flooding. It happens more often than you realize and is part of life here. Goes with the territory and is just another day at work.

You forgot,
(f) It's pronounced "WILKS-berry," not "wilkes-BEAR." :)

In my class, I told the students: "Always ask the locals how the names are pronounced."

(e) Everybody is fine.
That, after all is said and done, is the most important thing.

I'm just glad that everyone's okay. The national news had 200,000 people being evacuated from Wilkes-Barre, and I wasn't aware there were that many people living there.

Back when I was a teenager, I helped a couple of families clean up after Hurricane Agnes when the Schuylkill River came through their living room. It's amazing the damage it can do.

In any case, I'm glad it's just another day at the office.

Not. That's the entire Wyoming Valley and I'm not sure all of them had to get out. But it's a good round figure, lots of zero's. Maybe it is close to the actual number.
