Borough manager discusses flooding issues from recent storm

Emmaus Borough Manager Shane M. Pepe talked about the negative impact the Nov. 2 storm had on Emmaus at the Nov. 5 Emmaus Borough Council meeting.

“The high school was badly damaged by flooding in the street,” Pepe said. “The school is closed. There is ruined gym equipment and several dozen classrooms and offices that were also ruined.”

He also noted the severity of the storm.

“We have never seen a storm hit and flood something like a school before.”
