The deluge of rain that hit the region Saturday led to a swollen Delaware River and Neshaminy Creek.

As of Sunday morning, the creek and river in Lower Bucks County were below flood stage and expected to stay there.

The 2 to 5 inches of rain that fell Saturday led to the Neshaminy Creek hitting moderate flood stage in Wrightstown Township.

The Delaware River in Upper Makefield Township remained below flood stage.

The rain caused street flooding that closed portions of River Road in Upper Makefield Township.

The Neshaminy Creek level was the third highest recorded over the past year, according to U.S. Geological Survey data.

The strong winds that moved in starting the afternoon hours led to some downed branches and limbs.

A handful of power outages were reported, but most power had returned by Sunday morning.
