Drought Strikes Pennsylvania
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
The lack of rain is affecting Nockamixon State Park. The water fall has stopped falling. The Lake level is dropping as well as the flow of the creek leaving the park which helps feed the Delaware that is a major source of water supply in the Bucks County area to Philadelphia. Here in my home town of New Hope the level of the Delaware River is minus .5 feet. We need rain badly the local farms are just withering away. With corn at just under 3 feet tall something I have never seen before in this area.
Compared to my last I Team report last year on climate change you can see the difference.
This is shot from the spillway side; this is not the lake itself.
