Flood-prone homes in Bensalem urged to evacuate
Bensalem police officers are knocking on doors near the township’s waterways to advise people to evacuate.
On Monday afternoon, Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo said the township, which declared a state of emergency, is not telling everyone who live near the Poquessing, Neshaminy and Delaware to leave their homes. However, anyone who lives in flood-prone areas is getting the township’s message, he said. DiGirolamo declared the township in a state of disaster emergency on Friday.
Philadelphia’s mayor, Michael Nutter, on Friday had warned anyone who lives near flood-prone areas to get out by midafternoon Sunday.
