The Schuylkill River rose to about a foot below moderate flood stage Wednesday morning before it begin to recede in the afternoon.
Police urging everyone to remain vigilant, and look out for debris and ponding on the roads.
"Even though it may look safe. It is not safe. What may look two inches of water could be two, three feet of water, so if you see flooding don't go through it," said Lt Andrew Napoli, with the police marine unit.
