WEST PITTSTON, Pa. -- A sigh of relief could be heard all across the Wyoming Valley as the swollen Susquehanna River, well out of its banks, crested before causing a major impact.

"I don't think there is a danger of flooding in the town today because it's supposed to crest around 29.5 feet," said Leonard Stadts of West Nanticoke.

The Susquehanna River crested at 29 feet, meaning many communities were not severely flooded.

But the threat still scared many people we spoke with.

Brian Suder owns a transportation company in West Nanticoke. Flooding closed one lane of Route 11 in front of his business and he had to move some of his vehicles to higher ground.

"We moved about 20 of our vehicles last evening as precautionary and it was a long night. We've been checking the river level every half hour and hopefully, I think we're going to be OK," said Dobbs Transportation owner Brian Suder.

In this community it's not just the river that causing flooding; swollen creeks do, too.

"Once the river level reaches 27 feet, the creek can't discharge properly and that's normally where we get the problems from that creek over there, not so much the river."

In other areas along the river, we found road closures in West Pittston and on North River Road in Plains Township.

Water spilled on to portions of the road there but nothing that was too worrisome.

"It's actually not bad compared to what it could be since it's cresting soon. I think it's going to be OK. Hopefully, no more rain. That would be good," said April Lopes of Dobbs Transportation.
