2018 The Year Of Flooding In Lancaster

2018 was the year of rain, humility and flooding. It rained then rained some more than rained even more most of the summer. It seemed like every other day we were in a flash flood watch then it quickly escalated into a flash flood warnings. Twice most areas here around Mount Joy were flooded with most roads in blocked. The second time I remember we had thunderstorms for a few hours with 10+ inches of rain in that time. That day there was just standing water everywhere where I’ve never seen it before.

Little Chiques Creek flooded several times this summer Both close to if not higher than it crested from Tropical Storm Lee. The thing about that is I wonder how much of a factor the massive developing upstream helped increase the runoff and flooding.
