1939: FLOODING ON KENT STREET IN CHAMBERSBURG
You don't have to be near a body of water to have flooded streets. Above is an example of the many times we have all seen the results of a sudden cloudburst resulting in street flooding, or days of heavy rain. It's difficult to imagine the scene above occurring again.
I think in some of these cases poor storm drains cause this to happen. I never remember flooding
where we were no matter how hard it rained..on the other hand I do agree the luck of the draw cloudburst heavy rain for a period of time long enough could likely flood any area.
