Chisman Creek Park Open for Parking of Vehicles

November 15, 2019
 
Weather forecasts indicate that our region will experience effects from this weekend's coastal storm. In York County, strong winds are expected to build starting this evening and continuing through the weekend. This is not predicted to be a significant rain event.
 
Winds - Sustained mph winds are anticipated to be in the mid-20s with gusts into the 30s. Winds should subside late afternoon/early evening on Sunday.
 
Flooding - During periods of high tide, storm surge will produce moderate levels of flooding in low-lying areas. Coastal erosion is expected in areas normally impacted by high winds and waves. Flooding is expected to peak during the high tides on Sunday. Elevated tides will continue into early next week.

Chisman Creek Park (1314 Wolf Trap Road) is open beginning at 3 p.m. today for residents to move vehicles out of low-lying areas.  Vehicles should not be parked at our public school sites.
