UPDATE: As Yellow Breeches continues to rise higher and higher, residents forced to take action

UPDATED by James Tully:

New Cumberland -- The Yellow Breeches Creek in Camp Hill is expected to crest Saturday morning at 12 feet.  That's causing serious flooding along Creekwood Drive, which was completely overtaken by the creek late Friday evening.

Rob Brenkacs and his family live on Creekwood and Rob tells CBS21 that his basement was three quarters full when the rain finally subsided Friday night.

Brenkacs said the water had not quite reached his front door, and he was cautiously optimistic it may not reach the first floor of his home at all.

People living along the Yellow Breeches Creek in Cumberland County, are watching the creek closely as it continues to rise from flood waters.

The Yellow Breeches sits beside the New Cumberland Park, which is now closed because of the danger it now poses.

Earlier today the creek was expected to crest at 9.5 feet. Flood stage is 7 feet.  The National Weather Service just increased that prediction to possibly 11 feet.

That is bad news for some people living along Creekwood Dr. in Lower Allen Township.

If it does rise to 11 feet, water could threaten some homes. Rob Brenkacs lives next to the creek. Two years ago his home had three feet of water in its first floor.

He and his wife were not expecting this much rain.

Officials with Lower Allen Twp. alerted the couple and others living along the creek that the forecast had changed and flooding could occur.
