Heavy Rain, Sept 27th and 28th, 2008
48-hour rainfall through 8AM EDT 28Sept08
48-hour Rainfall through 8AM EDT 28Sept08
Heavy rain, due to training showers and thunderstorms, fell along and just to the west of the Main Stem Susquehanna River during the early morning of September 27th, 2008. Moderate to heavy rain continued through the day on Saturday, and into the morning on Sunday the 28th.

Some locations in and close to Union County (Lewisburg and Mifflinburg) had 3 to 4 inches of rain on Saturday morning, and another inch or so through Sunday morning (the 28th).

This rain was the first significant rainfall since the 9th and 10th of the month for most of that area. This recent dryness helped to keep the rivers and streams from overflowing. Only very minor reports of flooding were received.
