The West Branch of the Susquehanna River will be one foot above flood stage in Lock Haven if the predicted 22 foot crest comes to pass.  Williamsport is predicted to see the river crest above 25 feet.  Fortunately, both communities have a levee system in place that protects the majority of residences and businesses in the flood plain.

The good news is that the drought warning for Lycoming County (and many other counties in the state) has been lifted with all the rain from Irene and Lee.
