Flood warning in effect

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Delaware County and Southeastern Chester County until 5:45 p.m.

Doppler radar indicated a line of thunderstorms running north to south in the area, moving east at 30 mph. This line of thunderstorms is producing very heavy rain falling at the rate of one to two inches per hour. Expect torrential downpours for brief periods of time as this line moves through the warned area during the next two hours. Road flooding and small stream flooding can be expected where the heaviest rain happens to fall.

Some locations that will experience flooding include Wilmington, Newark, West Chester, Westtown and Kennett Square.

Precautionary/preparedness actions: Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.
