20 Over half of the town of confluence would be affected by flood waters prior to the construction of the flood control structures.
18 Flood waters cover Route 281 just downstream of the bridge over the Youghiogheny.
16 Significant flooding is expected on the Youghiogheny River in the vicintiy of confluence. Areas adjacent to the river which are not protected by flood control structures are inundated.
14 State Route 3003 is closed due to high water. High water covers the road about one tenth of a mile downstream of the confluence of the Casselman and Youghiogheny Rivers.
12 The right bank of the river overflows downstream of confluence and about 1/4 mile upstream from the gaging station.
7 The Youghiogheny Reservoir is expected to begin curtailing releases due to high water downstream of the dam. River interests are encouraged to monitor conditions in their vicinity and to be prepared if further rises occur.
