Tornado watch, flood update

The tornado watch is in effect for the entire region until 5 p.m., and a severe-thunderstorm warning has been posted for eastern Burlington County, and parts of Cape May, Ocean, and Atlantic Counties.

The National Weather is saying that about an inch of rain has fallen in a hurry in portions of Bucks and Montgomery Counties, and some minor flooding is anticipated, if it isn't happening already.

On the plus side, all this mayhem is moving quickly and should be off the coast by 5 or 6.

So far, no tornado sightings have been reported.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey tables, stream levels have been rising along the Perkiomen and Neshaminy Creeks, but they remain well below flood stage.
