Storm did not cause flooding

Friday's heavy rainfall luckily caused no flooding.

This is testimony to a better-than-adequate storm water system along with the borough's topography which plays a role in controlling and preventing floods.

Although the town has the Lehigh River on its east side, there are no residences found on the water's edge.

While a downward incline exists from Front to Sixth and West to Chestnut streets, the water drains well and flows into the borough's storm system.
