This Thursday, Fitzwater Station is Hosting a Hurricane Ida Remembrance Gathering
It’s been one year since the devastating winds and rain from Hurricane Ida swept through the United States. Businesses, homes, and families were affected by the week-long natural disaster. Hurricane Ida spread its disastrous bands so far into the states that rivers and streams damaged the landscape around Pennsylvania.
As you know, the Schuylkill River separates Mont Clare and Phoenixville. During the disaster, the Schuylkill river rose past the banks and into the homes and businesses in the surrounding areas. Families were displaced due to the water that engulfed the homes. Businesses like Lock 29 had to shut down to clean and assess the damage.
