The Chadds Ford fire chief, Phil Wenrich, says there were six to seven rescues on Tuesday and worried there could be more as the river crests.

"Please stay home. If you drive up on a body of water, you don't know how deep that water is," Wenrich said.

He said drivers need to know that the water can cause their cars to break down, and enough water can pick up a vehicle and sweep it downstream.
