The ice jam on French Creek north of Meadville was observed from South Mosiertown Road this morning and this afternoon.

It appeared to extend south from the Hayfield Township / Vernon Township line for approximately half a mile.

The flow of water in the creek did not appear to be obstructed since it is not rapidly receding below the ice jam.

French Creek is flowing freely at the Spring Street Bridge in the City of Meadville.

Crawford County EMA will continue to monitor the ice jam and provide updates as necessary.
