Flood Gates as a Precaution

October 30, 2017 - 8:12 am

All as a precaution, 3 of four flood gates are up in the area of Solomon Creek in South Wilkes Barre. City officials made the decision yesterday and have left Barney St open but are constantly monitoring the situation. Solomon Creek right now is not a problem. The Susquehanna River in Wilkes Barre is expected to crest tomorrow at 20 feet. If it does reach 22 feet only low lying non populated areas would be effected.
