The rains that have turned parts of Delaware County into a water park are letting up, but water up to 4 feet deep has accumulated on some streets.
In the Marcus Hook-Trainer emergency personnel have been invovled in at least six water rescues, according to esteemed colleague Mari Schaefer, who is at the scene.
Evacuations were reported in northern Delaware. In Trainer, a dump truck got stuck in the water after the driver evidently ignored a police car located specifically to avoid just such an occurrence.
"The (pejorative deleted) drove right past me," said Police Sgt. Rick Cominskie. The standing water reached all the way to the truck's rear-view mirrors.
