Forkston, Wyoming County - If Hurricane Sandy tracks inland as expected, parts of northeastern Pennsylvania could see several inches of rain.
That could possibly lead to flash flooding on small streams and creeks.
Eyewitness News went back to Forkston in Wyoming County Friday afternoon. That community was hit hard by flash flooding twice in 2011 and people are once again concerned.
"I'm scared. I'm scared to death," Liz DeWolfe of Forkston said. "I didn't get any sleep last night of course. I tossed and turned. Nothing has been done in the creeks and we know what is coming Monday and Tuesday. We know we're going to flood."
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has started a creek bank stabilization project. That work has been underway for months along Mehoopany Creek.
People say it is of little comfort.
"Nobody should have to live like this, scared, you know?" DeWolfe said. "Scared that you might lose your home or you're going to lose all your personal belongings. It's not fair and it's not right."
Residents blame trees and debris still lodged in the creek up off Windy Valley for their concern. A lot of the debris has not yet been cleaned up.
"We cant' get any answers from anybody or they come up and say, oh well, we'll fix your road but the road is not what needs to be fixed," Trish Stover of Forkston Township said.
