The flooding in NE Pennsylvania sounds like the worst I can recall occured around 1970. I recalled it washed away parts of I-81, killed a number of people and did some serious damage.
I live in Northern New Jersey and am familiar with bad floods covering over parts of towns, closing off major roads, washing out bridges. With all this heavy rain in the region, there should also be inspections of almost all roads, bridges done ASAP to look for flood and water flow damage.
