The link below will direct you to a great site with all kinds of weather, many river gauges, all creeks with gages and flood level information covering a large area of Pennsylvania. Specifically, you can hoover the mouse over our two most local gauges.
Penns Creek Gauge in Penns Creek
Susquehanna River Gauge in Sunbury
When the map opens you will see numerous colored circles, these circles are the location of water lever gages and are updated continously. If you rest the mouse on a circle it will show the location of the gage. If you click on the circle it will open the gage for that gage location.
These gauges are watched closely as you might expect and help to determine the timing and danger of high waters allowing for early warning to those who could be affected.
