Flooding in Lititz, Pa.

In case you missed it -- and count yourself lucky if you did -- things got more than a little damp on Friday evening and into Saturday morning when a hammering of storms rolled through Central and Eastern Pa.

Check out these rain totals:

Musikfest's been affected by the rains, temporarily closing three venues at the festival:


Out near Catasauqua, just outside Allentown, the waters of the Catasauqua Creek nearly reached walkways near the town’s swimming pool:

The town center of Lititz got more than its parks could handle, with flood waters rising over the seats of benches:

And the creek that cuts through the town was encroaching on the roads above:

The stretch of the Neshaminy Creek that slithers through Chalfont was also showing some signs of high waters and a little flooding, although this one seems less of a threat for now:

The Monocacy Creek that cuts through Bethlehem is also higher than usual:

And the Morning Call reports Cedar Beach in Allentown was under water early Saturday morning.

One bit of good news: Hershey Park, which dealt with closures due to rain in July, is open today:

Elsewhere, though, it appears Pennsylvania is one big water park this morning. Please take precautions when traveling near bodies of water until flooding subsides.
