Lewisburg is a river town where flooding is possible. Floods and flash floods are dangerous. In the event of a flood, please observe the following precautions.
Listen to and obey all warnings, restrictions and evacuation orders issued for you area. Stay alert for email and text alerts from campus officials about weather conditions that may affect you and campus.
Do not walk or drive across flood waters. If you come upon a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet. If you come upon a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
Avoid contact with flood waters due to the unknown amount of sewage, waste chemicals and the risk of drowning.
Do not go floating, boating, swimming or rowing in flooding streams or the river.
Use special caution at night because flood danger is more difficult to recognize in darkness.
Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. Electrical current can travel through water. Report downed power lines to Public Safety at 570-577-3333.
Do not enter or swim in the Mod Tunnel (under Route 15) during flooding. It is electrified, and you may be electrocuted.
