Flood Warning / Safety Precautions

The National Weather Service has issued a FLASH FLOOD WARNING for southern Dauphin County, including Swatara Township, until 1345 hours today.  Areas of Swatara Township including Schiavoni and McNaughton Parks are already flooded and the Swatara Creek is approaching Bridge Road.  All members of the community are urged to avoid standing water on our roadways and to stay out of flooded areas as the water may be moving faster than it appears.  Both Swatara Township and Hummelstown Borough have plans in place to protect areas prone to flooding as necessary.  Please do not go around road closure barriers as they pose serious safety issues.  You can report hazardous road conditions to the Police Department at 717-564-2550.
