NEARBY: Ice Jam Causes Minor River Flooding


The Delaware River left its banks Monday due to an ice jam.

The National Weather Service issued a Flood Warning due to blocks of ice that had jammed between Morrisville and Trenton. The ice jam caused the river to back up and spill over in portions of Lower Makefield and Trenton, causing road closures.

River Road was closed between West Trenton Avenue in Morrisville Borough and the area of Black Rock Road in Lower Makefield, according to NewtownPANow.com readers. A portion of Route 29 in Trenton was closed due to ponding from river water.

No homes or buildings were reported to be impacted by the flooding in Bucks County.

Forecasters said there could be a flush of water downriver once the ice jam breaks.
